Lloyds Banking Group announced today that it will close 48 more branches due to declining customer visits.
According to the Unite union, closing 41 Lloyds Bank branches and seven Halifax branches could result in 178 job losses.
Vim Maru is the retail director at Lloyds Banking Group. He said that “Like many businesses, we have seen people use our branches less often in recent years and this decline continues.”
“Our branches are still a key part of how we service our customers, but we must ensure that the branch network is large enough to accommodate the increasing number of customers who want to use them.”
Sharon Graham, general secretary of Unite, stated that the announcement by Lloyds Banking Group to close 48 more branches of its bank branch is a betrayal of the communities as well as the staff who have supported this highly profitable business for many years.
“This sector must take their social responsibilities seriously, and not neglect their obligations to customers and employees.
Banks are abandoning people in their rush to close branches and forcing customers to withdraw cash to increase their mega-profits. This is a classic example where profits are more important than people.
Unite stated that it believes that the banking industry should be legally bound to ensure access to cash and branches.
This announcement will reduce the number of Lloyds Banking Group branch to 1,475, according to the union.
These branches will be closing:
