Usdaw Area Organiser Lisa Willis says:
“This is clearly a very worrying time for the staff. The transfer of roles will take place under TUPE regulations and is subject to a collective consultation with Usdaw. We will be fully engaging in a meaningful consultation process on the proposed transfer, where we will be seeking the best possible deal for members.”
