Redundancies at Wilko will not be proceeding while administrators consider further bids, GMB Union has said.
The union met with administrators this morning [Tuesday] to discuss multiple bids which have been made for the discount retailer.
Andy Prendergast, GMB National Secretary said:
“All redundancies at Wilko have been suspended while the administrator considers further bids.
“Whilst this is a positive development, Wilko is not out of the woods by any means and this is a time of incredible stress and worry for the 12,500 workers who face losing their jobs.”
