Fresh calls not to shut Swansea factory.
The fight to safeguard 225 jobs at a Swansea plant's stepping up today.
It's after Unilever revealed earlier this month it was considering closing the site at Swansea's Enterprise Park.
Council Leader David Phillips has written to the company to offer it support in finding alternatives to the planned closure.
He's also calling for recognition that the site has remained profitable during the global recession.
"I can only therefore assume that the proposal for closure is based on a need for corporate restructuring and cost reduction across the organisation, rather than productivity of the Swansea plant and its loyal workforce.
"As such we would wish and urge you to retain the company in the area as it is an important component of the city’s manufacturing capability and has had public sector support previously to develop the business and safeguard employment.”
