RIVUS FLEET SOLUTIONS – PHASE 2 FURLOUGHING GARAGE NETWORK & HEAD OFFICE OPERATIONS
Further to LTB 192/2020 the National Team has been informed of additional furloughing taking place across the garage network and Head Office Operations at Aquarius.
As reported previously, Rivus advised that they would review the situation moving forwards and have now confirmed that due to continuing reduction of work volume there has been a need to furlough more employees. As such a further 66 employees are now being furloughed in addition to the original 133 which were in phase 1. The second phase of furloughing will commence on 1st May 2020.
The same process is being followed as per the initial furloughing and volunteers are being sought in the first instance.
We have also received confirmation that Stirling garage has been closed temporarily due to the reduction in workload and employees will be furloughed. The union is seeking further details on the reduction of work in Stirling
