UU safeguards metering jobs

Around 400 jobs have been safeguarded after United Utilities (UU) stepped in when Daniel Contractors went into administration. Daniel provided services to UU for metering and connections work across the region but went into administration on May 15.

United Utilities said it has "entered into a new agreement with Enterprise, to TUPE across employees, when the sale and purchase of Daniel is complete".

Wirral West Conservative MP and Minister for Disabled People Esther McVey said: “I wholly welcome the intervention by United Utilities, which I understand is the transfer of workers and equipment. 

“The news the company has moved to swiftly safeguard the future of these jobs is excellent news. These are skilled jobs, which are important to the economy of North-west.”

Two depots owned by Daniel in Oldham, Manchester and Penrith, Cumbria have also been saved.
