C P Pharmaceuticals, through its parent company Wockhardt, has entered into a contract with the UK government to produce millions of doses of Covid-19 vaccines. The agreement - which reserves capacity at the C P Pharmaceutical site in Wrexham - will kick in once a viable vaccine is identified. Unite represents hundreds of workers at the world class pharmaceutical site.

Dave Griffiths, Unite regional officer, commented: “Unite is extremely proud of our members at C P Pharmaceuticals which will hopefully in the near future be at the forefront of the fight against Covid-19. It is testament to the world class workforce at Wrexham that they have been chosen to mass produce vaccines once a viable one is identified. We of course hope that this production will start in the near future as it is only through a process of mass vaccination that our lives can return to normal. Once again it is union members that are at the forefront of the fight against this terrible disease."
