GMB Union has today said that it is an absolute disgrace that DUCAB, an offshore based Dubi company, trading as AEI Cables have shown such a disdainful attitude to workers and their families at AEI Cables, Birtley.
The Union said that generations of manufacturing will be lost by DUCAB seeking to avoid its responsibilities in using the Government backed CVA Scheme as a ruse.
GMB adds that DUCAB will now be sitting on a land banked asset and have called on the owners and directors from this multi million global business to pay up its full redundancy out of its global profits not leave it solely to the British taxpayer to have to fork out, for elites who will remove the plant, equipment and raw materials and make profit elsewhere whilst sitting on a land asset in Birtley.
The GMB said such callous disregard for local people by companies and owners who do not have a stake in the community should be investigated further
