Ryanairdontcare Campaign can confirm that RYANAIR are the worst for employment standards not only in Scotland,Not only in the UK but all over EUROPE.....
Below is a post from The Courier website.... http://www.thecourier.co.uk/News/Fife/article/18624/union-leader-s-criticism-of-amazon-rejected-in-fife.html
The on line retail giant has started hiring staff for its £60m distribution centre next to the M90 in Dunfermline, which is set to create at least 1,000 jobs.
Amazon received almost £9m in grants from Scottish Enterprise for the centre — hailed as a much-needed boost to the local economy.
However, Scottish Trades Union Congress assistant secretary Stephen Boyd criticised the Scottish Government for supporting companies such as Amazon and Ryanair, neither of which recognise unions.
He said: ''If we're giving grants to the Amazons and the Ryanairs of this world then we want these jobs to be sustainable and we want these jobs to be decent.
''Simply shouting about 1,000 new jobs in the Scottish economy is not going to cut it over the long term.''
In 2007, a row broke out about working conditions at Amazon's Greenock base. At the time, the GMB said the company was taking advantage of the fact people in the area were ''desperate for jobs''.
Mr Boyd claimed events at Greenock represented ''some of the very, very worst employment standards you will see right across the UK economy", and added: "The Scottish Government should not be in the business of supporting this type of company.''
He continued: "We've seen over the last few years a couple of significant investments into Scotland from what we would describe as some of the worst employers.
"We're providing grants to these companies to set up in Scotland but we have to start stipulating that we expect minimum returns in terms of employment standards."
We are in contact with the Scottish Government regarding the termination of Scottish Probationary Cabin Crew and will continue to do so.....
As for amazon, i did not know this Mr Boyd...I myself and my family will boycott AMAZON...
