Workers lose jobs due to building firm liquidation

Date Added: 26/10/2011  

Around 40 members of staff at a building firm have been told they have lost their jobs, after the company was served with a winding up order and entered liquidation as a result.

The Unite union stated that workers had turned up at Trade Manufacturing Facility (TMF) of Newtown last week, only to be told the business was no longer trading.

Union representative Howard Wright told BBC News that people are still waiting for their wages that were supposed to be paid earlier in the month.

"These were not minimum wage jobs, they were quite well paid. People will find it difficult to find jobs like them in the locality," said Mr Wright.

A Smith and Williamson spokeswoman confirmed that the "principal director" of TMF was responsible for informing the workers their jobs were gone.

This comes shortly after it was reported by the news provider that trade unions are demanding car manufacturer Saab be made bankrupt as a result of its debts.
