Jim McMahon comments on job losses at Airbus and EasyJet

Jim McMahon MP, Labour’s Shadow Transport Secretary, commenting on news of thousands of job losses at Airbus and EasyJet, said:

“News of job losses today in the aviation sector is devastating for those affected. Thousands of jobs have been under threat of redundancy, with staff, the sector and politicians of all sides urging the Government to act, yet Tory Ministers have been found wanting.

“Labour has consistently called for an extension to the furlough in the most impacted industries, and a sectoral deal that supports the whole aviation industry including securing jobs and protecting the supply chain, while continuing to press for higher environmental standards.”
