BAE to make 120 staff redundant in Brough
BAE has announced it will begin compulsory redundancies next year at its Brough site with around 120 staff set to leave.
The redundancies will be phased over the first six months of 2013 which will bring numbers to the level the company feels is adequate to carry out the remaining work.
In September last year BAE announced it was closing the Brough site with the loss of 899 jobs. But in May, the company brought in work to the factory meaning only 300 jobs would be lost.
The company promised there would be no compulsory redundancies this year but 223 staff have already left voluntarily.

There are currently 950 staff on site. Around 51 staff workers will leave and the rest will be manual employees.
Unite union’s convenor at Brough Ian Gent said: “These are not new redundancies but ones that have been planned. The staff affected have been briefed.
“This will bring staff numbers down to the level the company feels can carry out the contracts we currently have.
“But we will continue to fight for more work and secure as many jobs as possible.”
