Up to nine jobs are under threat at construction firm RG Carter because of a general shortage of work, union leaders have confirmed.

Officials at construction sector union UCATT said the affected roles were general operatives at the company, which is based in Drayton, near Norwich.

Brian Rye, UCATT Eastern regional secretary, said: “We are now aware there are going to be up to nine redundancies among general operatives at RG Carter Drayton.

“A consultation is taking place, mainly as a result of the availability of work.

“UCATT is representing members in that process. There has been no perceivable increase in the amount of work becoming available.”

Mr Rye said the region's construction businesses generally were suffering as a result of a shortage of work available, with Norwich, Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft areas particularly hard hit.

RG Carter declined to comment.
