PUB chain Marston’s has said it plans to cut 2,150 jobs due to the impact of the government’s new coronavirus restrictions across the UK.
The pub chain says 2,150 staff out of its 10,000-strong workforce are at risk with a decision expected by December.
The move follows similar measures announced by rival chain Greene King earlier this month, which confirmed 26 sites will permanently shut, while a further 53 will temporarily close with their future remaining in the balance.
Around 800 staff across the 79 affected Greene King sites are now in consultation with the chain about being made redundant.
It blamed a 10pm curfew on entertainment businesses in England.
