United Kingdom -FG Wilson to cut 760 jobs -September 13, 2012

Engineering firm FG Wilson, owned by Caterpillar, has announced it will shed 760 jobs in four Northern Irish sites. The company has set up a voluntary redundancy programme for employees to leave with improved redundancy packages and aid in the transition to a new job. FG Wilson said it will make redundancies known to workers as they go along, whilst trade unions have criticised the lack of dialogue and a proper social plan.
