Usdaw in talks with Ethel Austin administrators

Usdaw is in urgent talks with Menzies Corporate Restructuring after the Ethel Austin administrator axed 181 jobs and prepared to close 33 stores yesterday.

Some 92 jobs at Ethel Austin's head office in Knowsley have been cut on top of 89 job losses at its distribution centre in the same location.

Usdaw national officer John Gorle said: "We are now seeking urgent talks with the administrators to work out the best way to support and assist our membership in this difficult situation."

See the attached document for a full breakdown of which Ethel Austin stores will close in the next three weeks.
