Legal action launched for unpaid Jarvis workers

By Dan Bean »

THE RMT Union has launched legal action in a bid to recover unpaid wages for hundreds of former railway workers in York.

It has demanded the Government step in and ensure former Jarvis workers are paid £28 million owed to them following the collapse of the company.

The announcement comes after administrators for Jarvis, which folded in April with the loss of 350 York jobs suggested the banks which financed the company would be repaid in full, while the workforce would not receive anything.

In a statement, the RMT said legal claims had been filed with the Employment Tribunals “on the basis that individuals were unfairly dismissed, had unlawful deductions from their wages, and that their contracts were breached”.

York MP Hugh Bayley said he supported the legal action.
