Jobs at Panasonic Newport to be Cut
« on: November 06, 2012, 11:08:56 AM »

Panasonic’s Newport customer support centre may close, putting 50 jobs at the centre at risk.

Earlier this year, the company announced that it was moving production of telephone exchanges from Newport to Vietnam cutting 164 jobs. The factory has since been made a customer support centre for Europe but is now facing closure with its work moved to Cardiff and elsewhere.

It is now proposing to move some of the work to Cardiff but it would still mean job cuts for 53 out of 75 staff.
Panasonic has been in Newport since 1987 and is now launching a formal 30-day consultation process with the Unite trade union. The company is considering further consolidation of its operations in an effort to reduce costs and as a result is proposing to end all operations at its Newport facility.

Panasonic said the engineering solutions, system repair and web design work would move to Cardiff with other operations at threat of being transferred to other sites in mainland Europe and Asia. They include logistics, shared service, IT, finance and human resources.

The announcement comes on the back of redundancies at Panasonic earlier this year. The restructuring is due to be completed by the end of March 2013.

Oh no, what a shame - lets hope they change their minds! - every job is important at the moment and it would be horrible to lose your job if your place of work closes - if the worse happens, I hope you wont be looking for too long
