Statement on Tillery Valley Foods

Responding to the news that Tillery Valley Foods in Abertillery may enter into administration, potentially putting 250 jobs at risk, Rob Edwards, Community Union’s Regional Secretary for Wales, said:

“The workers are currently walking a path of great uncertainty.

“Tillery Valley Foods and the jobs of those who work there are vitally important to the local economy. The company is embedded in the community and provides unique skills-based employment offered nowhere else in the area.

“Our focus now is supporting our members. We call on the company, the Welsh and UK Governments and all concerned to do all that they can to secure a future for Tillery Valley Foods and its loyal, dedicated workforce.

“If the company is put up for sale, we expect the current owners to be responsible sellers. We welcome the opportunity to work with them and any potential buyers to ensure that workers are represented in the process.”
