Island needs TUPE legislation: union boss

A union head from the UK says the Isle of Man now needs to introduce TUPE legislation as more and more government services look likely to be run by the private sector.

Terry Pullinger of the Communications Workers Union was on the Island for a meeting to discuss the future of Ramsey's Crown Post Office.

He says the fact staff moving from Isle of Man Post Officd to Spar face a substantial pay cut shows Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) laws are needed here to make sure terms and conditions are guaranteed for privatised workers.

Mr Pullinger says it's an idea the Manx government dismissed back in 2012.
