Tories have failed on Carillion contracts – Rebecca Long-Bailey

Rebecca Long-Bailey MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, commenting on the announcement by the Official Receiver that a further 452 jobs are being lost as a result of the Carillion collapse, said:

“The Government has let down workers and businesses impacted by Carillion’s collapse. 800 workers have lost their jobs more are left not knowing what the future holds for them and Carillion’s shoddy treatment of businesses in its supply chain threatens even more jobs.

“The Tories have failed to protect the pay, conditions or pensions of workers on Carillion contracts. They must act now act quickly to ensure that these workers receive swift redundancy payments and are properly supported.”
