Woolworths (UK) Jersey staff protest

Woolworths' employees in Jersey have launched a petition after being told they will not receive redundancy pay. The 120 staff have been told that UK statutory redundancy payouts do not apply on the Channel Islands. Administrators did consider making a special payout to Jersey staff, but decided it would set a difficult precedent. Guernsey and Jersey's branches have already closed. More than 2,500 people have signed the petition launched by staff at the King Street store in St Helier. A spokesman for Deloitte said: "When it was explained to the staff from both Jersey and Guernsey that they wouldn't be receiving any redundancy payments, they were clearly frustrated, but most of that was directed to their governments." He added: "It's very unfortunate the staff in the Channel Islands are not entitled to any statutory benefits."
