We helped a group of casual workers, in conjunction with their trade union, to be furloughed by Copeland Borough Council during the third national lockdown. During the first national lockdown they were furloughed; during the second national lockdown, they were allowed to come in for their booked shifts and their employer found alternative work for them to do.
Words are not enough to express the thanks we have to you and the organisation for your work, time and commitment you have given our little group over the non furlough/non payment matter. I have received word this morning that we are to be furloughed at 80% wages based on last years rotas. This has been a combined effort between yourself, us and our local TU rep and I thank you from the bottom of my heart and pass on the thanks of my colleagues. If we can help you or your organisation in any way in the future you can count on us. Thank you again.
