Walkers Crisp Factory Closure

Commenting of the closure of the Walkers’ Crisps Factory, Grahame Morris, Easington Labour Candidate said:

“I am very disappointed that Walkers have proceeded with the decision to close the crisp factory at the end of the year and did not engage with the Union at the earliest opportunity to consider alternative proposals to closure.

My thoughts and concerns are with the families and workers at Walkers who have shown nothing but hard work and commitment to the company.

Walkers must now allow the Trade Unions and Jobcentre Plus to work with staff to give them new skills where required and every support to finding new employment in the locality.”
