With the outbreak of the COVID-19 Pandemic many staff were laid off from Blue Handling due to an unprecedented restriction in travel. The aim of this petition is to demand the reinstatement of those collagues who were laid off and be placed on the Governments Job Retention scheme (furlough).

There is no reason why our colleagues should not be Furloughed and recieve 80% of their wages for as long as the Job Retention scheme exists.

We petition the Senior management at ABM (Blue Handling) to reconsider putting all of our laid off colleagues on the scheme as they should not be penalised for something that was out of their control and for as long as there is government support we see no reason for a refusal to do this.
