RMT demands action as Better Capital confirm that they expect their £20 million back while City Link staff and subbies face ruin.

Mick Cash, RMT General Secretary, said

“While RMT continues to fight for justice for the City Link workforce we know from the thousands of messages of support we have received that the nation’s eyes have been opened to the money-grabbing evil of private equity so callously represented by John Moulton and Better Capital.

This whole sordid business has blown the lid off the cosy relationship between bandit capitalism and the political elite and RMT repeats it’s call for a full and forensic investigation into the events leading up to the Christmas Day collapse of City Link.‎”

General Secretary Mick Cash said. “Our organisers were out at depots across the country this morning and have reported scenes of absolute chaos.

Staff were hauled into pre dawn meetings with the administrators with the vast majority told their jobs had been destr‎oyed on the spot.
A small number of admin staff have been kept on in the short term to deal with a million parcels jammed in the system. It is absolute chaos and the blame lies squarely with John Moulton and his associates who have cynically collapsed the City Link business over the Christmas break.
The staff are angry and disgusted and up for a fight and RMT remains determined to do all in our power in the battle for justice for the City Link workforce. “
