Redundancy Fears Recedes At Denaby Factory
Because of a falling off in orders from the Imperial Chemical Industries the works manager at the Denaby I.C.I works, Doctor, Dr. Arthur Lowe, was warned that there might be some redundancy at the works but this week he told a “South Yorkshire Times” reporter that he thought there was now no immediate prospect of any redundancy at the works, which employs nearly 1,000 work people.
Dr. Lowe said that he had been warned a fortnight ago that there might be some redundancy and had warned the employees and said he would know one way or the other this week.
He said that there was a “slight easing in the position” now and “although the sky was not clear, the clouds were receeding.”
He said he had not heard definitely but “no news was good news.” The factory produces electric detonators and shares the production of these with a Scottish factory. A slight drop in export orders for these detonators caused the fear of redundancy.
