Motion text

That this House condemns employment practices within the Sir Richard Branson-owned Virgin trains that have led to summary dismissal of workers in direct contravention of employment law in the UK; has been informed of the use of confidential compromise agreements that withhold the identification of sums paid out in settlement of claims against summary dismissal; asks for information about how much public subsidy paid to Virgin Trains has been used to pay for this style of employment practice; rejects the discriminatory practices that mean Transport Salaried Staffs' Association trade union staff representatives are targeted; and calls on Virgin Trains to treat its staff in accordance with company policies and employment law to avoid the development of a confrontational approach to industrial relations and to promote dignity at work in accordance with alleged company values.
