Unite Blast Government Over Monarch Collapse

unite blast government over monarch collapse

Unite the union has blasted the government after news that Britains fifth biggest airline, Monarch, collapsed overnight.
Unite says ministers had rebuffed requests by Monarch for a bridging loan of the kind the German government recently gave to prop up Air Berlin.
Oliver Richardson, a Unite national officer, said, “Monarch’s workforce has worked tirelessly and loyally, with great sacrifice, to try and turn the airline around in the last year.
“Their hard work has been undone by a government seemingly content to sit on its hands and allow one of the UK’s oldest airlines go into administration.”
