TSSA Encouraged By Thomas Cook Talks

13 June 2019

TSSA General Secretary, Manuel Cortes, has said he is encouraged by discussions with Thomas Cook over the future of the High Street travel chain in the wake of a bid from Chinese firm Fosun for its tour operator business.

Manuel Cortes said: “We have had several discussions with Thomas Cook over the past few days and it’s fair to say reassuring noises have been made on the question of potential job losses.

“I’m pleased to say that we will continue holding regular discussions with the Company and will update our members as required. Their futures are our number one priority.

“Thomas Cook is a cornerstone of our high streets and we hope, sooner rather than later, to see this institution put on a sound financial footing once again for the good of all concerned.

“Of course the ongoing uncertainty at Thomas Cook is unsettling for our members and we urge all employees to join our union as this is the best and only way to protect themselves.”
