Triumph staff warned of job cuts

The firm says work now done in Swindon may not be needed

More than a quarter of the people who work for one of the world's largest lingerie manufacturers in Swindon may lose their jobs.

Triumph International's packaging and shipping arm in the town employs 238 people.

It has announced 65 of those jobs are now at risk.

In December last year the firm announced it was to freeze recruitment and pay for existing staff, citing "exceptional trading conditions".

A Triumph International spokeswoman said: "This reorganisation is a necessary step to keep the UK business competitive in extreme market conditions.

"The company deeply regrets that any job losses are being considered and will make every possible effort to ensure that all affected employees are being treated fairly and with respect for their contributions to the company."
