Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Fire and Rehire: ACAS Report (25 May 2021)

James Murray: Thousands of workers at British Airways and Heathrow, including many of my constituents, have been at the sharp end of fire and rehire tactics during the covid outbreak. Across the country, one in 10 workers have been subject to such tactics since last March—that is almost 3 million people who have been forced to accept lower wages and longer hours or be sacked. How many more millions of...

Covid-19:International Travel — [Yvonne Fovargue in the Chair] (24 May 2021)

Bob Neill: ...in the United States already. They already work with US airlines and have technologies in operation at Denver International airport. They have pilot schemes and have discussed trial schemes with British Airways. We need to get behind and encourage that. We must deal with the variants by being fleet of foot and adapting. If we can do that by investing in technology, and if, as was said, we...

Finance Bill: New Clause 23 - Review of impact of a global minimum rate of corporation tax (24 May 2021)

Dan Carden: ...and lives on the line for the benefit of others to ensure that their neighbours were fed, people were treated when they were sick and society kept moving, while some bosses at companies such as British Gas and British Airways used the pandemic cynically to drive down pay and terms and conditions through shameful fire and rehire tactics, and all the while the Government have stood by and...

Affordable and Safe Housing for All (18 May 2021)

Tony Lloyd: ...is just one of many areas that are missing from the Queen’s Speech, such as fire and rehire. Ministers made promises and said it was a disgrace, but we have seen large national companies such as British Airways and British Gas using fire and rehire tactics. Locally in the north-west, the bus company Go North West is threatening to fire and rehire its employees; fortunately, because they...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (12 May 2021)

Baroness Foster of Oxton: ...50,000 scientists and engineers. In truth, the entire supply chain, large and small, waited nervously for that update and it is obvious why. Our airports in the UK are losing £83 million a week. British Airways, part of the International Airlines Group, has posted losses of £6.5 billion. EasyJet, Ryanair, Jet2 and many others are losing millions of pounds every day. That does not include...

Debate on the Address: Better Jobs and a Fair Deal at Work (12 May 2021)

Ed Miliband: ...recover from the pandemic; rewriting the rules of our economy to shift wealth and power towards ordinary people and their communities; and rebuilding our public services. On those five issues, the British public deserved a Queen’s Speech that met the moment, but on each of those tests the Gracious Speech failed to deliver. Let us start with the insecurity that millions of workers face....

Air Pollution: London (27 Apr 2021)

Ellie Reeves: ...having secured this incredibly important debate. Prior to covid-19, polluted air was contributing to over 40,000 premature deaths in the UK every year. That is a truly shocking statistic, and the British Lung Foundation has previously stated that air pollution is the main environmental threat to public health in the UK. Despite this, under Sadiq Khan’s mayoralty, London has made...

Fire and Rehire — [Mrs Sheryll Murray in the Chair] (27 Apr 2021)

Imran Hussain: ... the Member for Jarrow (Kate Osborne) for securing this important debate on fire and rehire tactics and for the timely manner in which she has done so, with the outrageous firing of hundreds of British Gas employees earlier this month, just because they refused to be bullied by management into signing contracts that put them on worse pay, and worse terms and conditions. My hon. Friend...

Jim Shannon: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what recent discussions he has had with British Airways on greenhouse gas emissions; and what steps he is taking to promote more fuel efficient aircraft.

Business of the House (15 Apr 2021)

Gavin Newlands: Nearly a year ago, I warned the Government that if they did not act on fire and rehire when it reared its ugly head with British Airways, many others would follow. Just yesterday, hundreds of British Gas engineers were sacked without redundancy pay because they refused to sign an inferior contract. My Fire and Rehire Bill (Employment (Dismissal and Re-employment) Bill is essentially now dead,...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Dismiss and Re-engage Tactics in Negotiations (23 Mar 2021)

Afzal Khan: Fire and rehire is utterly immoral. Members across the House have received many emails from desperate constituents who are being subjected to the disgraceful tactic. From British Airways and British Gas to Go North West, workers across the country have been treated with contempt. One of my constituents who was served with a section 188 notice said to me, “We want changes to be made with...

Wales: Manufacturing Industry (17 Mar 2021)

Alex Davies-Jones: ...challenges that coronavirus has presented to the aviation sector and the entire manufacturing supply chain. I hear what the Secretary of State says about Airbus, but sadly, General Electric and British Airways in my constituency of Pontypridd have had to make significant staffing cuts. This sector is crying out for financial support, but its pleas are falling on deaf ears, so will the...

Budget Statement - Motion to Take Note (12 Mar 2021)

Lord Balfe: ...was also deputy leader of the Conservative group—the deputy leader is the one who gets the jobs that no one else wants—and she survived a good few years there. Finally, although she mentioned British Airways, she did not mention that she was instrumental in setting up a trade union. Labour loves to feel that it has all the TU people, but we have yet another person on our Benches who is...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Aviation: Coronavirus (12 Mar 2021)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: ...the start of this year (2021) £3.4bn of loans have been partially supported through export development guarantees. This includes a £1.4bn loan facility for easyJet, and a £2bn loan facility for British Airways, which will be largely guaranteed by UK Export Finance. The Chancellor has announced the renewal of the scheme to help airports and ground operators with their fixed costs, with...

Noise Pollution and Military Aviation (10 Mar 2021)

Jeremy Quin: ...units will publish details of upcoming activity online, in local newspapers and on social media platforms. I should add that we sometimes have to do things differently, owing to the vagaries of the British weather, with which we are all familiar, but that is our intent. I am saddened by the fact that there was a significant increase—by about 50%—in complaints about low flying in 2020...

Income Tax (Charge) ( 3 Mar 2021)

Alex Davies-Jones: ...that undercuts the very system that is designed to protect our most vulnerable. While the extension to the furlough scheme is welcome, for workers in the aviation sector at the General Electric and British Airways sites in Pontypridd, it is yet another case of too little, too late. That is despite months of warnings from trade unions, such as Unite, which are doing their very best to...

Coronavirus: Supporting Businesses and Individuals (23 Feb 2021)

Alex Davies-Jones: ...local businesses such as Edwards Coaches and Ferris Coach Holidays face ruin without targeted financial support. People have lost their jobs and livelihoods after redundancies at GE Aviation and British Airways, and there are still far too many people who have been excluded from support by the Government altogether through absolutely no fault of their own. The ExcludedUK campaign has been...

Covid-19 (22 Feb 2021)

Alex Davies-Jones: ...for nearly a year now, that industry and those businesses are simply unable to survive. In my constituency, we are losing excellent expertise—hundreds of jobs at GE Aviation in Nantgarw and at British Airways in Llantrisant. The Government have still not confirmed whether they will go through with their plan to cut universal credit by £20 a week either. That is yet another example of...

5. Statement by the Deputy Minister for Housing and Local Government: Working in Partnership for a Fair Work Wales ( 9 Feb 2021)

Mick Antoniw: ...trade unions still further. So, I very much welcome this very timely statement. Can I also really endorse what you say about the concerns we have about some of those large corporations—British Airways, British Gas—who've sought to use COVID as a cover for undermining ethical standards of employment and workers' rights? Can I also welcome your commitment in respect of the social...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Dismiss and Re-engage Tactics ( 9 Feb 2021)

Navendu Mishra: ...balloting for industrial action against shameful fire and rehire tactics that would see 10% cuts to wages and jobs and sickness protection policies shredded, all in the middle of a pandemic. With British Airways recently forced to back down from similar threats against cargo staff after targeted strikes by Unite the union, does the Minister agree that Government inaction against this...
