SNP MP Drew Hendry (pictured) has written to the CEO of Britannia Hotels, Alex Langsam, asking him to rescind the redundancy letters sent to staff at the Coylumbridge Hotel in his constituency.
Commenting, MP for Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch & Strathspey, Drew Hendry MP said:
“This move by Britannia Hotels is completely unacceptable.
“I understand it is a worrying time for the hotel trade and urgent support is needed, but we are all in this emergency together.
“This fails even the most basic test of how to treat people.
“I have written to the CEO of Britannia Hotels and asked him to rescind the redundancy letters, and offered to discuss with him how a different path can be taken – one that supports everyone affected fairly and humanely.
“If there was ever a time for looking out for others, this is it, even when businesses are understandably concerned.
“However, whilst these redundancy letters were shocking and should be rescinded immediately, it is great to see the way the wider community is rallying round those affected with offers of support.”
