    Pilgrim’s Food Masters to slash hundreds of jobs

     Pilgrim’s Food Masters, which makes chilled and frozen meals for the grocery sector, has announced up to 260 redundancies at the company’s site in Dean Way, Southall. 

    Pilgrim’s will now enter a statutory 45-day consultation with staff. 

    Up to 1,000 Pilgrim’s workers were faced with fire and rehire at one of the company’s other London factories – but after pressure from GMB members, bosses withdrew the threat. 

    “GMB has serious concerns about how this will impact on our members and the local community with the job losses,” said Gavin Davies, GMB Senior Organiser.

    “With the previous closure of Colette Way, a further closure to Dean Way has come as a massive blow to our members. GMB will fight tooth and nail for workers to be paid every penny they are due.”
