Jarvis workers back on political agenda

Jarvis workers back on political agenda

5:54am 17th June 2010

Loss of jobs in York due to the collapse of Jarvis is back on the political agenda later.

Over a thousand posts were lost earlier this year 350 in our area.

York Central MP Hugh Bayley has told Minster fm:

'Network Rail has signed a contract with Babcock that will allow 25 of those 350 who were made redundant to be re-employed, but that is not good enough. Rail track needs to be renewed for reasons of public safety, and those skilled workers need jobs, especially if the Government are to fulfil their obligation to build new railways.'

Bayley plans to ask the Government what more they plan to do later.
