GMB Calls Upon Neville Wiltshire Owner Of Abertillery Firm He Shut On 30 October To Pay Monies Owed To 19 Staff Who Face Xmas With No Income
Mr Wiltshire closed firm with immediate effect with no notice and no consultation and redundancy pay, holiday pay, pay in lieu of notice and overtime monies owed have not been paid so these workers says GMB.
GMB is calling on Neville Wilshire, the Welshman who shot to fame in a BBC Reality TV series the Call Centre, to pay monies owed to 19 staff following him closing RIS Insulation Ltd in Abertillery on October 30th with immediate effect and with no notice and with no consultation.
Mr Wiltshire took over RIC Insulation, a loft and cavity wall insulation specialist, in August 2013.
Jeff Beck, GMB Regional Officer, said “GMB is well aware of the media profile of Neville Wiltshire, who owns RIS Insulation Ltd, as he projects himself for the benefit of TV cameras.
Away from the TV cameras and reality TV we can see how Mr Wiltshire treats his employees in real life.
Mr Wiltshire turned up at the workplace and spoke to workers at RIS Insulation Ltd on Oct 30th. He told them the place was closing with immediate effect with no notice or no consultation. No redundancy pay, holiday pay or pay in lieu of notice or overtime monies owed have been paid. These workers have been left with no income in the weeks running up to Christmas.
GMB calls on Mr Wiltshire to meet his legal obligations and pay redundancy monies, holiday pay and pay in lieu of notice or monies owed from overtime work that has not been paid. GMB is also filing legal claims on behalf of these members.
GMB also calls on the public make clear to Mr Wiltshire that reality TV is one thing and real life is different and what he has done is not acceptable. He has to be told to pay his workers the monies he owes them.”
