Stop fire and rehire

MPs are awaiting a date to debate the use of ‘fire and rehire’ tactics in Parliament.

This is when employers use, or threaten to use, weaknesses in the law that allow them to sack workers only to reemploy them on reduced terms.

Shamefully, we have seen over the last few months GMB members forced into this position by their employers British Gas/Centrica and British Airways.

It is immoral for employers to play fast and loose with the security of employees, many of whom who have given decades of their lives to an employer.

We’re asking you to write to your MP, ask them to attend the debate and speak in support of better protections for workers.

Please use the tool to send your email and help us take the fire and rehire threat off the table.

Dear Member of Parliament,

I am writing as a constituent of yours about the anticipated debate in Parliament on ‘fire and rehire’.

It is shameful that over the past few months major employers have used mechanisms for sacking tens of thousands of workers so that they can reduce terms and conditions.

GMB members at British Gas/Centrica and British Airways have given decades of their lives to deliver profits for those companies. The way they have been treated is disgraceful.

It’s clear that the approach is all about employers being the aggressors and taking the upper hand in negotiations.

The result is a negotiation than can never be conducted in a fair and balanced way. I think we need a change in the law to stop this from happening.

Please can you attend the debate and speak on my behalf and behalf of all of those concerned about fire and rehire tactics?

Yours sincerely,

Sign now!
