Workers who are facing redundancy at Coca-Cola bottling plants in England could be redeployed to East Kilbride.
The drinks giant is planning to close two of its UK sites next year with the loss of nearly 300 jobs.
The proposal would affect the manufacturing site in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, where 234 jobs are on the line, with a further 54 posts under threat at its distribution centre in Northampton.
Coca-Cola Enterprises said the proposed changes would bring about greater efficiency and revealed 121 roles could be created at other sites with potential redeployment opportunities.
However, the firm could not confirm how many workers were moving to the East Kilbride factory at College Milton at this stage.
Trade union Unite has vowed to fight proposals they have branded “disappointing”.
A Coca-Cola spokeswoman said: “We know [this] news will be upsetting for our people at these sites, and our immediate priority is to support them throughout the consultation process.
“We are proud of our long-standing links with both towns and have not made these proposals lightly.
“However, we believe the proposed changes are necessary as they would provide significant productivity improvements and create greater efficiency across our manufacturing and distribution operations in Great Britain.
“If these proposed changes are implemented they could result in the total loss of 288 roles, and the sites would close in 2019.
“At the same time, we are proposing to transfer production and warehousing to other GB sites. We expect to create 121 additional roles across our manufacturing and distribution networks, providing potential redeployment opportunities for impacted colleagues.”
