Crisis response to union engagement

Louise Harris, Chief Operating Officer, said: “It is regrettable that Crisis has had to dismiss a member of staff. They were also a trade union representative.

“Dismissal is always a last resort - and we are acutely aware of the impact it has on the individual and those around them. We follow extremely thorough processes before coming to any decision. While we cannot comment on the specifics of this case due to an on-going process, at its heart was a very serious matter.

“We are firmly committed to working in partnership with our Unite representatives and their members - and know from the work we have done together that our staff benefit when we collaborate well. We always engage with our Union representatives, as only together can we create the best possible workplace for our staff. We have made it clear that we wish to continue positive dialogue.”
