Staff at a Dundee call centre have started receiving notices of compulsory redundancy ahead of its closure on December 8.
Earlier this year, Lloyds Banking Group announced its intention to shut its Marketgait call centre, located above the Bank of Scotland, with the loss of 250 jobs.
Since then, workers have started receiving formal notices that their contracts will be terminated, staggered in line with how long they have been with the company.
Some have also been offered work at Lloyd’s Dunfermline contact centre.
Jim Fielding, the assistant general secretary at bank workers’ union Accord, said that despite workers’ contractual obligations, Lloyds had been allowing employees to leave early if they found new jobs.
He said: “To be fair to Lloyds they’ve been reasonably good at releasing people who have found other jobs and they have been able to leave early without it affecting their severance in any way.”
A spokeswoman for Lloyds Banking Group said: “We’re continuing to support colleagues as they work through what the change means for them. This includes helping them identify alternative opportunities.”
