Kylemore Reinstate Staff during Coronavirus #BoycottKylemore #BoycottKSG

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!

On Thursday 12/03 Kylemore (KSG) staff across UCC were laid off without warning when they were given a letter informing them that they were 'struck off'. This was done in response to the closure of UCC until 29/03 to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

Many of these staff have worked at UCC for years and KSG has shown no respect for them as people and zero regard for their wellbeing. As KSG's business model focuses on minimum outlay to leverage maximum profit many of these staff are on or near minimum wage. They are now left jobless on top of all the stress and anxiety of the situation concerning coronavirus. The staff will have to apply for whatever social welfare payments they are eligible for involving multiple visits to the social welfare office, needlessly exposing those vulnerable to the virus to further risk of contracting it.

We the undersigned are calling for:

1) a public apology and acknowledgement by KSG that the decision they made was wrong;

2) the restoration of all these staff, and their deployment to other KSG operated locations as appropriate;

3) a boycott of all KSG owned or operated venues until the above are done.

Please use the hashtag, share widely and let people no which venues are run by KSG. This petition is addressed to a few but there are many.
