THE union which represents AXA employees whose jobs are at risk has said it will seek to minimise the number of compulsory redundancies.

The Unite union was speaking following today's announcement that 120 jobs are going at the insurance giant's Ipswich office.

A total of 560 jobs are going across the whole company.

Unite said it could not speak specifically about the Ipswich job losses.

But Rob MacGregor, Unite national officer said: “Unite is disappointed that AXA has decided to make 560 job cuts from their insurance division. Unite will be meeting with our members over the coming days in order to discuss with them the impact of this news. The priority of the union is to work with AXA in order to minimise any compulsory redundancies through opportunities for redeployment within the AXA UK group."
