Tom raises concerns over Boulby redundancy settlements

Responding to reports that workers at Boulby Potash who are being made redundant will only receive 1.5 rimes statutory redundancy payments, local Labour MP Tom Blenkinsop said:

“A lot of the workers at Boulby who are being affected by these job losses will have been used to what would be considered a decent wage in the area – perhaps in the region of over £30k. Obviously it is devastating that they have lost their jobs, but then to have this level of redundancy I would suggest is nothing but an insult.

“These workers deserve to be treat fairly and I have written to the management of ICL UK to put forward that case. This company has made a lot of money from the hard work of these people and that deserves to be acknowledged.”
