Redundancies limited to 51 at processing plant

The number of redundancies at the 2 Sisters Food Group chicken processing plant in Llangefni, north Wales, is fewer than was originally feared. 

It has been confirmed that 51 staff have lost their jobs, though at one point there were concerns that up to 270 staff could be made redundant. Of those 51, 37 have been voluntary.

“Further to many weeks of detailed consultations with our colleagues at the Llangefni site, their trade union representatives and officials, we are pleased to confirm that the site has now moved to the proposed operating model which the business presented to the site two months ago and that consultations have officially been concluded,” said a company spokesperson.

“We now begin work together in ensuring that the changes which have been implemented are embedded and the site begins to realise the operational benefits of those changes.”
