ANGLESEY AL SHEDS 31 JOBS MORE than 30 metal workers.

MORE than 30 metal workers have been made redundant on Anglesey. Anglesey Aluminum Metals(AAM) launched a consultation on job cuts at their Holyhead plant in July as decommissioning of the former smelting works came to a close. After weeks of discussions with their 110 staff and union representatives they have confirmed 31 staff will be axed. Nine of those are voluntary redundancies while 22 are compulsory lay-offs. A spokeswoman said: "AAM continues to offer all affected employees outplacement support which includes access to various professional consultants (including Careers Wales) and one to one workshops to gain advice on possible ways of developing their future. "AAM continues to employ 75 people at the AAM site, most of whom work in the re-melt business." The ending of smelting operations back in September 2009 saw more than 400 workers made redundant. Staff remained in the re-melt business and to decommission the site.

Now that the clearance work is coming to a close the company was seeking a reduction in staffing levels. Since smelting ended the firm has worked to secure new investors at the site and surrounding land.

These include a biomass and fish farm project and a holiday village.
