Usdaw MP Meg Munn backs Chancellors scheme to get more back into work

Tuesday, April 3, 2007

Sheffield Heeley MP Meg Munn has welcomed the Chancellor’s innovative scheme to get 100,000 jobless people off the dole by offering them work trials with some of Britain’s major retailers.


Gordon Brown announced in his Budget statement a plan to create a network of Local Employment Partnerships working with retailers like Sainsbury’s and Tesco. The retailers will offer unemployed workers a trial lasting two to four weeks and if successful they will be offered jobs in their store.


Meg said:


‘Over the last ten years unemployment has been at it’s lowest ever level. The Working Tax Credit has been a great success and has helped thousands of people in my constituency to get back to work. This announcement in the Budget is a further step to give more opportunities for people to get back into work and is a move I welcome.’


Usdaw General Secretary John Hannett commented further:


“Retailers have already done much to regenerate deprived areas by employing local people when they open new stores and this clever initiative by the Chancellor will build on that good work. There are now 3 million people working in retail which is one of the driving forces behind unprecedented economic stability over the last decade and this scheme will help more jobless people to share in that success.


Make no mistake, these will be real jobs that can lead to massive opportunities to progress in a retail sector that continues to grow and this scheme will allow jobless trainees the chance to develop skills that will allow them to develop long-term careers in retail. Usdaw has strong agreements with Tesco and Sainsbury’s so the trainees can expect to work for companies with excellent terms and conditions plus the support of trained union reps as they come back into the workforce.”
