Redundancies and closure for City Link Lincoln

Some 25 employees have been made redundant from Lincoln’s City Link branch and the office has now been closed.

An announcement on December 31 saw 22 people made redundant after the initial announcement before Christmas that the delivery company had gone into administration.

A further communication this week has confirmed that the remaining three people left in the Lincoln office have also now been made redundant and the office has been closed as of January 7.

This is part of the Joint Administrators of City Link Limited announcement of a further 230 redundancies throughout the company and across the country.

In total, 51 City Link depots will be closed for good as of January 15.

The employees who have been affected by this have been made aware and will be paid any overtime that was obtained in December 2014, a long with the time that they have worked in January on the company’s usual January pay date.

Hunter Kelly, Joint Administrator of City Link Limited, said: “It is with regret that we announce further redundancies at City Link Limited, which will take effect over the coming days as the Company’s remaining UK depot operations close.

“Having returned a large volume of parcels to City Link Limited’s customers and recipients over recent days, it is no longer viable to continue operating these depots and a phased plan to close them has begun.”
