Andy McDonald comments on a deal being reached on fire and rehire with British Airways

Andy McDonald MP, Labour’s Shadow Employment Rights and Protections Secretary, commenting on the news that a deal has been reached on fire and rehire with British Airways, said:

“It is fantastic news that a deal looks to be reached that will protect the jobs and terms and conditions of British Airways workers, but it is an outrage that they were put in this position.

“Fire and rehire punishes working people, penalises good employers, and damages our economy.

“The Government should outlaw these tactics so that no more workers face the sack unless they agree to cuts to wages and conditions.”
