SHOCK AMONGST WORKERS AS THEY ARE TOLD TO DOWN TOOLS AND WALKED OFF SITE ON FRIDAY AFTERNOON WITHOUT WARNING.
GMB are demanding answers after staff at the Barnsley Safestyle site were told to down tools last night.
Despite receiving millions of pounds worth of orders in the last month Safestyle has suspended its share trading, locked its gates and told staff that it intends to file for administration.
Staff are demanding to know where has the money gone.
Lee Parkinson, GMB Organiser said:
"Safestyle UK workers have been completely let down by mismanagement from the very top of the business.
"More than 600 workers have been cruelly cut off from work, weeks before Christmas, with no guarantee that they will even get last week's pay-check.
“The impact of this closure upon the community of Barnsley cannot be overstated. It is simply devastating.
"We need urgent answers on where the money has gone. GMB will be on site with our members on Monday to demand those answers”
