Unite regional officer, Graeme Turnbull, said the potential of job losses was a “bitter blow” for staff.
He said: “The announcement by Johnstons of Elgin is a bitter blow for the workers at the firm’s Elgin sites. There is now an ongoing redundancy consultation involving the workforce which is scheduled to conclude in October. While at this stage there are no compulsory redundancies Unite’s efforts will be completely fixed on ensuring that no worker will be forced to leave their role if they wish to stay at the firm.
“We understand the pressures on business due to the Covid-19 pandemic but we ask that Johnstons of Elgin work with us to ensure that we save as many jobs as possible and we stave off in all circumstances any future announcements.”
