Communisis collapses into administration
Communisis collapsed and brought in the administrators on the 28th of December following months of difficulties. As a result, there are a significant number of redundancies across the company.
Part of the Communisis business has been sold to Paragon through the administration process, including the Lloyds Banking Group contract, which sees many of our members transfer to a new employer. This has saved 581 jobs and the continuation of the services provided to Lloyds Banking Group.
We know that it's been an uncertain and worrying time for our members, and that the sale to Paragon may create more upheaval. We'd encourage questions relating to immediate changes such as pay dates, to be directed to Paragon, including what support they plan to provide to help you through to your next pay day. As Paragon gets to grips with the contract there may be further changes. We'll be doing what we can to support you through this period.
We're aware of some redundancies among our members that weren't included in Paragon's purchase. We know that you want stability and financial certainty as soon as possible.
We'll be taking legal advice on claims that may be possible as a result of the collapse and immediate redundancy.
There’s some guidance on our website which may be helpful including CV writing and ways to find new work.
Finally, you may be able to use the services of either of these two organisations:
- Print workers charity - they may be able to offer support, including financial support
- Bank workers charity - this support may be limited depending upon how long or if you worked for Lloyds Banking Group prior to joining Communisis
If you need individual support, please contact Chris Rimell at [email protected] or 07506 540325.
