Speaking on Radio Sheffield, MP for North East Derbyshire, Natascha Engel has expressed her shock at the news that Tesco are closing down their Distribution Warehouse at Barlborough.
Natascha has said: “Many of my constituents work in this distribution centre and this is a massive blow to the local economy. It is perfectly placed in the middle of the M1. There does not seem to be any rationale behind the decision to relocate to new centres in Reading and Dagenham”.
Over 400 Tesco staff and many Agency workers are affected by the decision.
Natascha said: “This is another example of jobs moving from the North to the South. We need to do all we can to keep employment and create new jobs in North East Derbyshire”.
