Lloyds and RBS make job culls

LLOYDS and RBS have implemented around 1,900 job cuts in the UK as part of the headcount slashes they both announced last year.

The news prompted calls by Unite the union for the government to intervene to prevent the job losses.

Unite’s David Fleming said: “How can there be any justification for the government not intervening as these much needed jobs are lost?”

At Lloyds, 1,300 jobs will go, while 300 will be moved abroad, meaning workers will have to move to keep their roles. RBS is cutting 460 but creating 150 jobs.
