Wilko: Redundancies suspended as talks for bids continue

Whilst this is a positive development, ‘Wilko is not out of the woods by any means’, says GMB Union.

Redundancies at Wilko will not be proceeding while administrators consider further bids, GMB Union has said.

The union met with administrators this morning Tuesday 29 August to discuss multiple bids that have been made for the discount retailer.

Andy Prendergast, GMB National Secretary said:

“All redundancies at Wilko have been suspended while the administrator considers further bids.
