BRIDLINGTON’S TSB BRANCH TO CLOSE IN SEPTEMBER AS ONE OF 36 TO BE AXED ACROSS UK

Bridlington’s branch of TSB will close in September after the bank announced it was axing 36 branches and cutting 250 jobs.

The branch on Manor Street will close its doors for the final time on Thursday 12th September.

TSB has cited fewer people using the branch as the reason for its closure.

Unite the union, representing workers at TSB has said the decision to cut 250 roles at the bank is ‘a grave mistake’.

The job cuts announced today will be in the fraud operations of the bank, central operations as well as job losses in the bank’s branch network because of the 36 branch closures.

Unite regional officer Andy Case said: “The decision by TSB to cut 250 roles is a grave mistake. These workers perform essential work in the fraud departments and across the branch network.

“Through extensive negotiations Unite has been able to substantially reduce the number of jobs at risk. However, that isn’t sufficient, the union is pressing TSB to urgently reconsider its damaging bank branch closures plan.

“At a time when customers are increasingly concerned about financial fraud and often need support from a local bank branch this is the wrong course of action.

“TSB customers will rightly be concerned by today’s news and they will undoubtedly suffer a downgrade in service from these job cuts.

“Unite will hold fresh negotiations with TSB about ways of further reducing job losses and it will be fully supporting its members affected by the announcement.”
