The Austrian owners today announced talks had started with staff on the Foxhills Industrial Estate site

A company spokeswoman said: “Mondi Group is in consultation with trade unions and employee representatives at its UK sites of Scunthorpe, Deeside and Nelson regarding a proposed site rationalisation, including the downsizing of the Scunthorpe plant.

“The changes are designed to streamline operations, further improving productivity and customer service.

The proposed restructure could result in a total of up to 80 redundancies across the three sites. All employees will be treated fairly throughout the process, with appropriate support and assistance being provided.

In 2015 Mondi started to restructure the Scunthorpe business by cutting 12-hour shifts to eight and reducing the number of temporary staff.

The packaging business was first brought to Scunthorpe 30 years ago by Mark Wheatley who later sold out to Mondi.
