RMT slams Trump hypocrisy as he receives approval for a second golf course in Aberdeenshire while slashing jobs and conditions at Turnberry
RMT has slammed the "rank hypocrisy" of Donald Trump and his global operations as it was revealed today that he has received permission to build a second multi-million pound golf course at his Aberdeenshire resort while taking an axe to jobs and conditions at Turnberry.
The union says that the move confirms that the claims that the cuts at Turnberry were due to COVID are a con and that the real motive was to slash the head count, hire and fire at will and dump hard-earned improvements to pay and conditions under the cloak of the pandemic.
RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said;
"It is rank hypocrisy of the highest order for the Trump Operation to blame the pandemic and a cash crisis for the axing of dozens of staff at Turnberry while at the same time they were planning all along to spend millions on a new course. There is no shortage of money and all they ever wanted was to use the pandemic as a cloak for slashing the head count and working conditions and exploiting a global crisis to rule by fear.
"RMT will continue to fight the cuts and stand up for the rights of the Trump workforce in Scotland.".
