Unite warns of possible 'tsunami' of job losses after Government paves the way for contract terminations as from 1st July

Unite has warned of 'difficult times ahead' which could see a 'tsunami' of job losses, after the Government paved the way for contract terminations as from tomorrow.

The union says it does not agree with some aspects of the Government's BEAT 2.0 measures announced on Monday, in particular those relating to employee jobs.

Speaking to Ros Astengo, the National Officer said employers should not be able to cut jobs if they are receiving Government grants to support their business.

Stuart Davies also said the 30% limit of terminations in any workforce receiving BEAT payments is too high.
