Staff at BAE Systems’ Brough site have been promised there will not be any compulsory redundancies this year despite the need to cut hundreds of jobs at the location.The facility is scheduled to close next year, but the company pledged to avoid cutting jobs before the end of 2012, reports BBC News.Local MPs Alan Johnson and David Davies met business secretary Vince Cable and BAE bosses earlier today (May 1st) and Mr Davies said BAE has promised to keep some jobs in Brough.Mr Davies, the Conservative MP for Haltemprice and Howden, added: “At last the company are beginning to engage constructively on finding jobs.”Mr Johnson, Labour MP for Hull West and Hessle, added progress is being made in the talks.A poll of BAE workers in Warton and Samlesbury recently resulted in the staff members electing to take a pay cut in order to avoid the need for the firm to make redundancies.Posted by Ross Strowger
