UK Supermarket Group Morrisons ‘to Cut Cash Manager Posts’

UK supermarket chain Morrisons has begun a four-week consultation period with almost 700 members of staff after unveiling plans to introduce cash-counting machines across 490 of its stores, according to the industry trade magazine ‘
The
Grocer’
.

The publication quotes a statement from the group, which confirms: “Morrisons has begun to consult with 689 cash office managers and supervisors about a proposal to remove management and supervisory positions in cash offices in stores. Morrisons will support its colleagues throughout this consultation process.”

A spokesman for the group added that the proposed systems would automatically count cash and improve efficiency. Morrisons is the UK’s fourth-largest supermarket chain and employs around 131,000 staff. The group has recently seen its market share fall to 11.7% in the 12-week period to 17 March against 12.3% for the same period a year earlier.
