HUNDREDS of jobs are at risk across the Midlands following a decision by the new owner of utility firm Central Networks – now part of Western Power Distribution - to cut overheads following its acquisition of the company earlier this year.
Unions believe as many as 800 jobs could be lost at Central Networks’ two offices in the region, at Tipton and Castle Donington, Leicestershire.
The company is responsible for electricity distribution in the Midlands, South Wales and the South West, with responsibility for overhead lines, underground cables and substations.
The jobs of engineers and control room operators are thought to be safe but the future of many support staff is now in question.
