WORKERS at an ailing Brighouse firm have urged a union to intervene in closure plans.
Now officials of the GMB are to seek talks over the future of UV Modular.
They want more information about the company's closure.
Up to 140 staff at vehicle assembly business UV Modular at Armytage Road lost their jobs when the receivers were called in last month.
UV Modular, a subsidiary of AssetCo plc based in Middlesex, had seemed to be thriving but the administrators who were called in following a request from the directors said the firm's financial position meant closure was the only option.
The GMB union in Brighouse represents about 40 UV Modular workers.
Branch secretary Mr John Durkin said: “We are seeking clarity over the state of the firm's order books.
“We were given to understand that the order books were healthy and we want to know what has happened.”
Paul Rooney and Steve Ellis, partners in PricewaterhouseCoopers, have been appointed joint administrators.
The factory in Armytage Road – which supplied ambulances to health trusts all oevr the UK – has been shut down.
UV Modular was founded in 2002 from the ashes of the former company UVG which had gone into administration.
