Peter Fankhauser, Thomas Cook UK & Ireland's chief executive, said: "It is never easy to make decisions that impact directly on our people, but we also owe it to our customers to shape the business effectively and ensure that, when they book their holiday with us, our administrative costs are as low as possible.
"It is essential that we operate with the right number of people as we move forward into the next era for our company, allowing us to meet the future needs of our customers more effectively.
"These proposals will mean a stronger Thomas Cook that continues to be a major employer in the UK."
It has not yet been announced whether any of the Lincolnshire stores will close.
