The union will put pressure on the company to reveal where the axe will fall.

The Star revealed today that hundreds of HSBC jobs are at risk in Sheffield after the firm’s announcement.

Unite’s Dominic Hook said: “This week’s devastating announcement has left the entire HSBC workforce in limbo.

“HSBC must make it clear where these job cuts are planned and they must commit to a voluntary redundancy programme to minimise compulsory cuts.

“HSBC is one of Sheffield’s largest employers and it must recognise its responsibility both to the workforce and the community.”
