My Local staff are deeply disappointed that the company has now gone into administration and stores are closing says Usdaw

Date: 30 June 2016 Convenience store retailer ‘My Local’ has announced that the business has gone into administration. 37 stores (plus 2 who have already completed) will continue to trade and have potential buyers, with the expectation that staff will transfer to a new owner under TUPE. The remaining stores have no potential purchasers at this time and staff have been notified of a redundancy situation.

Joanne McGuinness - Usdaw National Officer says: "My Local staff are deeply disappointed by the news that the company has gone into administration. We continue to talk with the company about the future of the remaining stores, as we seek to see them successfully transferred to new owners. We are also in conversation with Morrisons who have offered to re-employ any former staff who have lost their jobs as a result of My Local store closures. In the meantime we continue to provide our members with the support, advice and representation they need.”
