We are fully aware of the pressures on the cash services industry in the face of electronic payments and constant demand for cost-cutting from the finance and retail sectors

The union has also demanded that alternative posts are available to staff that are deemed at risk.

Roger Jenkins, GMB National Officer, said:

“GMB is supporting members through this difficult time and alternatives to redundancy are being explored.

“We are fully aware of the pressures on the cash services industry in the face of electronic payments and constant demand for cost-cutting from the finance and retail sectors.

“GMB will continue to work closely with G4S to avoid compulsory redundancies and to ensure that the long term future of our members is secure."
