As proceedings begin to take Phoenix Venture Holdings to the High Court in relation to Rover trust fund payouts, Rover Community Action Trust chair Gemma Cartwright MBE has told the Birmingham Post how many made redundant in the Rover closure now face a second round of redundancies.
Gemma tells the Post how many of the workers who lost their jobs are now facing fears of job losses as public sector cuts begin to hit and highlights how social problems are affecting the local area.
Councillor Andy Cartwright told B31 Voices: “It’s a disgrace how long the Phoenix bunch have been able to play with the financial and mental health of the ex work force. It is time to put into action the promise that they made nearly 7 years ago. It is time for the Courts to see the human faces behind the promises and lies. The work force were an amazing group who put British manufacturing on the map.
“As you all know, I have been campaiging for the past 6 years and will not give up and I will be working hard along side with the Unions and Richard Burden MP towards building a case for the High Court.”
