Co-op offers to re-employ former colleagues

Following news that The Food Retailer Operations has gone into administration, the Co-op has offered to find jobs for ex-colleagues in the 36 affected stores.

Since the sale to The Food Retailer Operations in 2016, 36 former Co-op sites had been trading as Budgens. It was announced on 10 February that The Food Retailer Operations has been put in to administration.

Helen Webb, director of HR, food retail, at the Co-op, said: “We’re sorry that the company has gone in to administration, and we want to do everything we can to assist former colleagues. If no buyer can be found for the stores, we will make every effort to help find alternative employment for those affected. In addition, we have protected the pension rights of former colleagues, and are ensuring former Co-op colleagues receive the full redundancy pay they would have been entitled to when working at the Co-op.”
