The Scottish Government’s Partnership Action for Continuing Employment will join a seminar/drop in session for former employees of Thomas Cook arranged by Unite the Union.
The meeting in the Unite the Union offices in John Smith House, 145 West Regent Street, Glasgow will take place on Monday 30th September 2019 from 1 pm until 5 pm.
The bulk of Unite Thomas Cook members are cabin crew and engineers and there is no collective agreement which covers employees in Thomas Cook stores such as the one in Clydebank but Unite have extended the invitation to all Thomas Cook employees.
At the session former employees will have the opportunity to speak with PACE representatives for advice on a range of issues and Unite will provide legal guidance and back to work support.
Speaking about the report, Gil said:
"The collapse of Thomas Cook is a tragedy for the hard-working former employees of Thomas Cook who have lost their livelihood through no fault of their own.
"It is right that they should be given support to deal with the situation and I am pleased that Unite the Union and the Scottish Government have responded quickly."
