Devastating news about Kodak jobs

Below is my statement following the devastating news of job losses at the Kodak factory in Morley:

This is devastating news for all 210 staff at the Kodak factory in Morley. Kodak have a long and proud history of manufacturing in the town and I’m very concerned that an efficient and profitable operation is being closed.

I have requested an urgent meeting with Kodak to discuss their announcement and what is being done to support their staff team. I have also written to the Business Secretary to ensure he is aware of the impact on UK Manufacturing.

Kodak must ensure all the options have been explored on this so that if jobs can be saved, they are. And if jobs are being lost we need to make sure workers are getting all the support they need at what will be a really difficult time for them and their families.
