The announcement that Butler Tanner & Dennis will be going into administration is being taken very seriously by the Town Council and we will play an important role in bringing resources together in response to the situation. The first step we have taken is to discuss the situation with the Department for Work & Pensions (DWP) Response To Redundancy Team.
I am pleased to confirm that DWP have agreed to bring in the full weight of this national service to support the staff affected by the decision. In due course DWP will be able to offer a comprehensive package of advice, information and practical assistance to staff affected by redundancy.
However, the first consideration is to find out exactly how many jobs will go, when and whether there is an opportunity to safeguard any of them. DWP is making initial contact with the administrator/holding company on our behalf to begin that dialogue.
There will be further bulletins as more information becomes available but if you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to contact Peter Wheelhouse, Economic Development & Regeneration Manager on 01373 475573 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
