oSSES of a Bosley mill destroyed by fire have been slammed for refusing to pay workers that are facing redundancy.
Wood Treatment Ltd, which is owned by the Boden Group, wrote to staff saying they would not receive wages from August 7 onwards, but will receive minimum redundancy pay.
The firm employs 50 staff, but just six roles will be retained on the site.
The move has been slammed by union chiefs, Macclesfield MP David Rutley and Cheshire East Council leader Michael Jones, who accused the firm of ‘walking away from traumatised staff’.
Three workers died and a fourth worker is still missing following a massive explosion on July 17.
Three bodies recovered are believed to belong to that of Dorothy Bailey, 62, William Barks, 51, and Derek Moore, 62. Further remains have yet to be formally identified. Jason Shingler, 38, is still missing.
Police are working with the Health and Safety Executive on the investigation. ●» For full story and details of fundraising events see pages 6&7
