BBC report featuring UVW members shines a light on unscrupulous companies

UVW members were recently featured in a BBC report shining a light on unscrupulous employers who have either failed or refused to furlough their employees in the middle of the pandemic.

In that report, which you can read here, you will be able to hear from UVW members Amber and Claudia.

Amber is a student who was working two part-time jobs but who has been left without months of pay by one of her employers, Troxy, a popular music venue. As a result, Amber is now in rent arrears and will most likely be evicted from her home in a few months time.

Claudia is a cleaner who before the pandemic was working six part time jobs, but who was let go by one of her employers, Cleanology, who refused to furlough her along with 100 other workers once lockdown was announced on the 23rd of March.
