The proposed closure of Northampton Coca-Cola distribution centre

Obviously I am disappointed at the proposed closure of the Coca-cola distribution centre in Northampton. Coca-Cola has assured me they have a retraining and reskilling programme in place and will be offering some of the workforce alternative positions in other plants where skills match.

Whilst this will be a worrying time for the workers and their families, the local economy in Northampton is robust with record low unemployment and I am confident that people will be able to find new employment. I have been in contact with Coca-Cola and I will be working closely with Coca-Cola throughout this process.
