First BHS now My Local…
Convenience store chain My Local is set to collapse into administration putting 1,650 jobs at risk.
The news comes just nine months after the chain was bought from Morrisons.
According to Sky News, Morrisons is planning to take on any of its ex-employees who were transferred to My Local after the sale of the business.
Joanne McGuinness, national officer at union USDAW, said: “My Local staff are devastated by the news that the company is going into administration.
“Having been sold by Morrisons last year, there was a mood of optimism that the new owners could turn around the business.
“We are talking with the company in a bid to save jobs and get the best deal for staff. In the meantime, USDAW is providing the support, advice and representation they need at this unsettling time”.
