RMT Press Office:
TRUMP TURNBERRY UNION RMT said today that it is stepping up the fight to halt an all-out assault on jobs and conditions at the US President's Scottish flagship that are being bulldozed through under the cover of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Consultation on a brutal package of measures ends on the 16th August and involves the axing of up to eighty jobs alongside other savage cuts to sick pay, working hours, pay enhancements, staff benefits and working conditions.
RMT Senior Assistant General Secretary Mick Lynch said:
“RMT is stepping up the fight to protect our members jobs and working conditions at Trump's flagship Scottish Turnberry operation as the close of the formal consultation looms large.
“As all the talk is about UK staycations at the moment it is clear as day that these savage cuts at Trump Turnberry are nothing to do with COVID-19 and everything to do with casualising the workforce and kicking away their working conditions to jack up profits.
“RMT is demanding that the axe to be lifted from above our members heads at Trump Turnberry and we are calling for public and political support for this campaign.”
