GMB, Britain’s general union, has responded to the Government’s ‘limp excuse for action’ on fire and rehire in Parliament today.

Gary Smith, GMB General Secretary, said:

“Ministers' limp excuse for action on fire and rehire has let down thousands of people are having their lives torn apart by fire and rehire.

“We believe evidence from workplaces across the county exposes the archaic and cruel practise for what it is.

“The UK is at a crossroads moment for our covid recovery in terms of how workers are treated going forward; will the Government level up as promised, or is it back to the failed ‘business as usual’ model?

“Unless Ministers now publish the ACAS report and finally move to make fire and rehire illegal, then it’s clear to GMB which direction the UK Government is going.”
