Cost-cutting hits jobs at Sainsbury’s

Staff at support centres to bear bulk of cuts

The supermarket giant said that about 13 per cent of staff in the centres will be affected.

Late last year, the firm said it intended to make savings totalling £500m over three years.

A consultation process lasting 12 weeks will be instigated before any jobs are cut.

"We want to work through this period of uncertainty as quickly as possible, while making sure we consult with colleagues who are affected by these changes," chief executive Mike Coupe said in a letter to staff.

"We're committed to treating all impacted colleagues with respect, during what we know will be a difficult time."
Sainsbury’s are not the only supermarket to make cutbacks.
Tesco will close 43 unprofitable shops in the UK – more than half of which will be local convenience shops, known as Tesco Express.

The retailer is also shelving plans to open a further 49 new "very large" stores.

Morrisons said that it would close 10 loss-making stores in 2015.
