Aberdeen Trades Union Council (ATUC) has added its voice to the widespread condemnation of City Link bosses who sacked thousands of workers during the festive period.

At its first meeting of 2015, delegates from affiliated unions called for the nationalisation of City Link to protect all jobs and pledged support for City Link workers.

Scott Sutherland, of Unite the Union and an ATUC delegate said, “The actions of City Link bosses in sacking thousands of workers, especially at this time of the year, is nothing short of disgraceful.

“The fast track sackings at City Link demonstrate the worst elements of casualised Britain, with workers denied even basic rights to proper consultation.  This can’t go on.”

The ATUC has issued a press release and will now send messages of support to the RMT union and all its members affected by the sackings.
