The collapse of Carillion is a potential disaster for 250 workers at their city centre offices and raises concerns over current and future pension arrangements. I’ve already spoken to the Minister who has given me assurances on the position of Carillion staff for the foreseeable future and I will continue to press their case.
I’m also seeking to ensure that the reallocation of contracts will not delay the tram-train project or essential flood protection work in Don Valley.
Carillion is a company that has grown rich on taxpayers’ money through public sector contracts and those at the top have grown very rich indeed. I want to ensure that people in Sheffield don’t lose out as a result of the company’s mismanagement.
