WORKERS at a crisis-hit Anglesey meat processing plant could take industrial action over redundancy payments.
350 jobs are on the line after Asda pulled out of a meat contract with the Welsh Country Foods plant in Gaerwen.
Unite representative Paddy McNaught confirmed there would be a postal ballot after parent company Vion confirmed to him they would not give enhanced redundancy pay outs.
He said: “The workers feel Vion has turned their backs on them, even though have pulled out all the stops to help the company through the problem they’ve got.
“When you consider that employees at Vion’s Hall of Broxburn plant in Scotland received enhanced payments, it’s a real blow that the company has not rewarded their efforts, should the plant close on April 10 as we expect, which is when the Asda contract ends.”
The postal ballot is expected to be completed in two weeks.
Vion announced last year that it intended to pull out of the UK to concentrate on its core markets in Germany and the Netherlands.
Vion were unavailable for comment.
