The Textile Clothing and Footwear Union (CFU) is to investigate the potential impact of Pacific Dunlop's decision to get rid of its Pacific brands, the Illawarra Mercury reported.

CFU state secretary Barry Tubner said he would seek an urgent meeting with Pacific Brands, a division of Pacific Dunlop.

CFU Melbourne-based state secretary Michele O'Neil said Pacific Dunlop had indicated the companies would be sold as going concerns and there was no indication more jobs would be lost, however it was announced yesterday that 80 jobs were to go at Jockey Australia. Workers were worried that this was the beginning of a series of cuts, she added.

Mr Tubner said he was not as confident as Ms O'Neil that there might not be any more immediate job losses.
