MTVHA - Stop the Sackings!
Please cease all compulsory redundancies during the recruitment freeze caused by Coronavirus restrictions which would make it impossible for anyone to find alternative employment.
Why is this important?
MTVHA is pressing ahead with compulsory redundancies resulting from restructures despite the government guidance to maintain the employment of all staff as far as possible. The organisation has an operating surplus of £149 million (2019) and can afford to wait out the jobs market downturn.
The consequences for staff made redundant during this period will be devastating. Staff will be unable to meet their housing, energy, and travel costs. They will struggle to feed their dependents.
We ask that MTVHA rethink and freeze all redundancies until the virus restrictions have been lifted.
