Supermarket giant Morrisons has made the decision to shift to a single maintenance provider, down from more than 80, putting more than 1,000 jobs at risk.

The grocer, which is trying to cut costs after its October 2021 takeover by US private equity group Clayton, Dubilier & Rice, is also likely to lay off 50 staff dealing with property maintenance at its Bradford head office and offices around the country, according to The Guardian.
