18 November 2022

Prospect, the union for tech workers in the UK, has today written to Twitter setting out its concerns about the current restructuring process.

Read the letter here.

Prospect General Secretary Mike Clancy said:

“We are deeply concerned by further reports of the treatment of Twitter employees. From removal of remote working, demanding commitment to long hours and unsustainable working practices, and now locking employees out of their offices, we will not let these makings of a digital P&O pass unchecked.”

“We are urgently seeking a meeting with Twitter UK Ltd to discuss how it will manage its collective redundancy consultation, ensure a fair and transparent process, and meet its duty of care and legal obligations to employees, including those with particular needs.”

We will continue to do everything we can to support our members at Twitter. “
