Sponsorship for those who have committed on the basis of being able to pursue a career.
Sponsor those who have worked their way up in the company because of promises and mentions of sponsorship and are now being told they cannot be sponsored.
Why is this important?
Many of us who come from Australia and other Commonwealth countries moved here on working holidays and found a career. We are invested in the company and have been for a long period of time. Over the past years we've built lives, friendships and relationships which we do not wish to end or leave over this. We would be more than willing to agree to long standing contracts if it is what it takes, but we feel as it was promised and mentioned to us as a way of getting our commitment that it is now owed to us in a way. We love our jobs and our pubs and this is why we made a commitment, because we thought we could grow within the company and someday head these pubs.
