John McDonnell responds to BEIS staff strike

John McDonnell MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, commenting ahead of 4 days of strike action by outsourced BEIS workers forced to use food banks.

“I am calling on Greg Clark as the Secretary of State responsible for this department to personally intervene to tackle this appalling situation. It’s obvious that outsourcing has failed and these jobs need bringing back in-house. It’s the deepest irony that the department responsible for employment cannot secure decent employment standards for the staff that serve it.”
