    BBC Local Live, Hull and East Yorkshire

    Unite has called for an urgent meeting with the management of Icelandic Seachill in Grimsby.

    It was announced earlier today that one of the town’s largest employers has been put up for sale.

    Unite say they have around 180 members at Seachill, mainly working in production roles and do not understand the rationale behind the sale of the company.

    Quote Message: We understand that the company has had a significant improvement in sales recently, so why has the business been put up for sale? This is a worrying and uncertain time for the dedicated and hardworking workforce. We will be giving our members the union’s maximum support in the days and weeks ahead.” from Mike Wilkinson Unite regional officer

  17. Unions fear proposed funding changes will mean shortfalls

    Sharon Edwards

    Political Reporter, BBC Radio Lincolnshire

    A teaching union says Lincolnshire will lose £45m under planned school funding changes. 

    The government disagrees and says its new formula - due to start in 2019 - will tackle longstanding unfairness.

    But the National Union of Teachers says according to their figures some schools are facing massive shortfalls and will have to make redundancies.   

    Quote Message: As a whole it'll have a detrimental impact. Some schools will be forced to make decisions like teacher redundancies, have to make considerations about buildings... because these cuts in some cases are extremely severe. from Ken Rustidge NUT

    The Department of Education says the figures are fundamentally misleading because schools will receive more money as pupil numbers increase. It adds school funding is at its highest level on record.
