‘Fire-at-will’ plan blasted

Have your say

EDINBURGH East MP Sheila Gilmore has hit out at Tory plans to allow bosses to sack workers for no reason.

A controversial report by venture capitalist Adrian Beecroft would give employers the right to axe staff at will.

The Labour MP said: “These are tough times and people in Edinburgh are already worried about losing their jobs without the Tories making it even easier for them to be made unemployed. To end this recession made in Downing Street we need a proper plan for jobs and growth, not Beecroft’s fire-at-will manifesto.”
