Nestle jobs announcement

April 28, 2021

This is very concerning news for those affected, and I am already in touch with Nestle arranging an urgent meeting, at which I will press them to make the very best arrangements for local employees.

I understand these proposals are still at consultation stage, and I expect Nestle to ensure this is a meaningful process in which the voices of employees are properly heard. I will also look to see they fulfil their responsibility to keep workers regularly updated, to minimise uncertainty, and to make generous redundancy provision.

It is sad these losses from automation and efficiency changes come alongside Nestle actually investing £20 million in the KitKat line to secure the future of 500-plus other jobs and their presence in York, with production due to rise by 500,000 bars a day.

This follows the good news earlier this week that a Bosch subsidiary company is investing some £30 million to significantly expand operations at its Fulford site. Nestle’s decision therefore underlines the importance of attracting a diverse range of employers to York so our local economy is not reliant on decisions by a few firms, which is another reason we must press on with the York Central development.

I am of course available to assist all affected constituents during this process, and invite them to contact me.
