CEMEX announces proposed redundancies of South Ferriby Cement logistics workers

Published by
World Cement,

Building materials supplier CEMEX has today informed proposed redundancies of the cement logistics employees based at its South Ferriby Cement Plant.

Following the recent decision to mothball the South Ferriby Cement Plant, the business committed to undertaking a review of the fleet provision based at this location. As a result of this mothballing the footprint has been moved to CEMEX locations at Rugby, Tilbury and Hull. Consequently, CEMEX has reviewed a number of options and has concluded that it is no longer financially viable to continue to operate the fleet at South Ferriby.

CEMEX is proposing the redundancies of the cement logistics employees at South Ferriby during the third quarter of 2020. If this proposal proceeds it is anticipated that CEMEX will be using its existing contracted and non-dedicated haulage provisions and this will result in redundancies of 25 cement tanker drivers and one manager at the South Ferriby cement logistics depot.

CEMEX understands this news will be a further disappointment to the local community following the previous announcements about mothballing the plant. The company would like to reiterate that all commitments to the local community will be maintained, including the work agreed as part of the Environment Agency flood protection project.

CEMEX will shortly commence a process of collective consultation with affected employees. A final decision will be announced when complete.
