Sugar Factories Close

Updated: 12:37, Thursday August 17, 2006

Two factories run by British Sugar are to close with the loss of 230 jobs, it has been confirmed.

The GMB union said workers had "reluctantly" accepted that sites in York and Allscott, Shropshire, will cease production.

British Sugar proposed the closures earlier in the summer, blaming a "radical reform" of the European sugar regime.

There will be a phased closure from early next year of the factories, which have been producing sugar for decades.

The GMB criticised farmers for reaching a compensation deal with British Sugar.

Spokesman John Kirk said: "The farmers have been compensated and can grow alternative crops, but our members now face job losses."

All very interesting (and worrying for the people and areas concerned) but for balance you should post articles about job creation as well redundancies. Of course they don't make such exciting reading so probably aren't as well reported...

Quite right. Gordon is creating lots of civil service jobs in Scotland and has a massive jobs creation program for debt counsellors.

There is one:

Hundreds of jobs could be on their way to Shropshire, although one of the area’s biggest employers, dairy company Muller, is planning to axe 64 staff, it was announced today.

Thing is it is not the creation of jobs at all, just a different business park that hopes to attract other businesses from other parks.

The rest are supermarkets expanding in some places, contracting in others - net result is often negative in overall employment.

Agreed - but unemployment on the whole is only drifting very slowly up from a historic low. Individual stories may have more emotional impact than dry statistics but they don't always give an accurate picture.

Time and time again its the same bottom line decision. Gordon is going to have to face up to the fact that his miracle economy based on HPI-MEW has made us uncompetitive in a global economy. Globalisation and high wages necessary to pay for basic needs such as housing do not go together. This is why we are going down and why we will look back and see that it was the insane irrational exhuberance over houses that contributed most to our economic collapse. WE have a massive imbalance problem: HPI is not being set off by commensurate levels of production. Put simply, we cannot afford the most expensive houses in the world.

Cannot disagree that the proof is in the pudding as they say and the unemployment trend has only just turned.

But then there is the bigger issue of who can/will actually claim unemployment or join the registers, what is actually being lost jobs/industry wise and what jobs are being created - there are obviously a lot of jobs that have been created but I suggest that the vast majority are next to useless for the long term prosperity of the country or in deed the propserity of the individuals taking them (if they able fully exposed as a long term resident of this country).

LG was doomed the minute they said that the old style tubes were no longer going to be produced. of course the space could have been switched over to producing LCDs thye just did not want to in that location any more. I wonder how much they will get for the site? Enough to start two manufacturing plants elsewhere in the world? :ph34r:

Annualised, that figure is 360,000 - not exactly chopped liver is it? And that's despite all the massaging of the total.

But let's not forget, we are only just ENTERING the, what I reckon will be severe, downturn. The unemployment figure will gather pace when we're technically in a recession.

Apparantly the UK is booming. I suppose so if one discounts new car sales, retail sales, house price inflation, debt, an increasing savings ratio, unemployment. Smells suspiciously like a recession to me but "it's different this time" - oh I see!

That's the thing isn't it. Our government politicians are so selfless modest these days, that you'd have to put them at gunpoint to show up to the opening of a new factory. No one stands up and takes the credit anymore. Where is Jim Hacker when you need him?
