Morrisons has today announced the closure of 10 of its stores.
The supermarket chain has not yet revealed which shops will close.
Joanne McGuinness, of the union Usdaw, said: “This is devastating news for the staff in the 10 stores.
“We will now enter into full and meaningful consultation meetings on these proposals, where we will look closely at the company’s business case. Our priority is to maximise employment within Morrison’s, seek redeployment opportunities and minimise compulsory redundancies.”
