Since Carillion's collapse, 800 workers have lost their jobs and many more employees wait with bated breath to hear what the future holds for them.
“The Government should have ensured the continuity of employment of those working on Carillion contracts and protection of their pay, conditions and pensions.”
“It is clear this has not happened and now these workers must receive swift redundancy payments and support both in terms of those in financial stress such as encouraging banks to show mortgage leniency and household bills the same plus access to training and employment support.”
"Carillion's poor treatment of businesses in its supply chain, by failing to pay them on time, has led to many being on the verge of bankruptcy, threatening even more jobs.
"The Government's failure to think long-term means that the future for most workers is still uncertain and they must act quickly to provide much-needed reassurance and protect workers from further redundancies.
