Construction industry ‘set for more redundancies’

Many members of staff working in the construction sector may still be facing the threat of redundancy over the coming months.This is according to Brian Berry, director of external affairs at the Federation of Master Builders, who explained small firms operating in the industry remain very pessimistic about their employment plans for the next year or so.He noted falling workloads are to blame for this and it is likely many companies are going to be forced to make redundancies as a result of not having enough projects for members of staff to work on.”We are seeing a trend across all of the surveys coming out from construction bodies. It is all doom and gloom at the moment and not very encouraging,” said Mr Berry.His comments come despite the announcement of a new £150 million cash injection from the coalition government for the Get Britain Building fund, which is set to see 200 stalled construction projects up and down the UK restarted.Posted by Ross Strowger
