MP comments on Heinz factory job losses
Heinz has announced plans to axe 45 jobs from its Kendal factory by transferring production of some of its infant milk products to New Zealand. Commenting on the news South Lakes MP Tim Farron said:
"This is incredibly worrying news. I plan to meet with managers, South Lakeland District Council and the Trade Unions urgently to discuss this issue. I will be asking Heinz to bring extra production to the factory. The staff at the factory are incredibly hard working and I will be asking Heinz to do everything they possibly can to support staff and the families affected."
