Redundancy payments given to workers in Merseyside who were told they were losing their jobs have been handed over to a local charity.Some 175 members of staff at the Delphi plant in Kirkby will lose their positions due to the closure of the plant, but £7,000 from the redundancy payments pot is being given to a number of local charities across Merseyside, with the management of the firm agreeing to match this figure.Unite national officer Tony Murphy stated it is a very sad day for the employees, some of whom have been working for Delphi for many decades.Unite regional officer Phil Allman said: “It is typical of the generosity of this workforce that even when faced with the sadness of closure and where some have never worked anywhere else since they left school, that they think of others.”The Union of Shop, Distributive and Allied Workers recently noted 103 former members of staff at failed toffee manufacturer McCowan’s have won redundancy payments at an employment law tribunal, BBC News reported.
