Tata Steel cuts 900 jobs in UK
23 November 2012
The steel-making company has announced plans to cut 900 UK jobs.
The job cuts include 580 in South Wales, 155 in Yorkshire, 120 in the West Midlands and 30 in Teesside.
Tata Steel’s proposals include the restructuring of management and administrative functions which would lead to the loss of 500 jobs at Tata Steel’s Port Talbot-based production hub in South Wales.
The news coincides with a decision that the company is to restart Blast Furnace 4 – one of two blast furnaces in Port Talbot, South Wales, which is being rebuilt as part of a £250 million investment programme – in the first quarter of 2013.
Shift levels at the company’s Rotherham and Hartlepool operations will also be reduced to match production to lower demand for bar products and pipelines.
More Flexibility in the workplace with Borer's FUSION T&A System.
Borer's Time and Attendance system is designed to offer employees more flexibility in the workplace. With more and more emphasis being placed on work life balance, organisations must define procedures to support employees.
One way to do this is by implementing flexitime by providing staff with flexible working hours to accommodate those working part-time, family priorities, covering absences and job sharing.
