orangeOutrage Protest

by Alan Dean on 18 August, 2020

Last week I was invited to attend a protest at Stansted Airport by easyJet employees. They were angry at the airline’s threat to pull its ground operations out of Stansted, with consequential staff redundancies, whilst the company had been taking large amounts of taxpayers’ money from the government during the Covid-19 pandemic and had handed out ¬£millions to shareholders.

The protest was organised by the Unite union, whose representatives told me that they would like to talk to Uttlesford District Council about the likely negative impact on the local economy and to seek support from local authorities. In response, I wrote the attached letter on Sunday to the Council’s cabinet member for economic development.
