Hudghton (Greens/EFA) - A stark example of the need for improvement and the establishment of a common European framework for informing and consulting employees is occurring in my home area at this moment. A long established multi-national company – Levi-Strauss – recently gave advance notice of redundancy in relation to workers at two factories in Scotland, at Bellshill and Dundee. The news media were informed first, and the announcement was accompanied by a statement explaining that the company had unilaterally considered and rejected any possible alternative to closure. This type of action is deplorable, not helped by the fact that the UK is seen as having the weakest legislation in this area. I therefore welcome and support moves towards a reasonable EU-wide standard for proper consultation with workers.
