Thomas Cook tells unions it is 'absolutely committed' to high street presence

Union bosses have welcomed assurances from Thomas Cook that it is 'absolutely committed' to having a high street presence.

In a statement issued today, TSSA general secretary Manuel Cortes said Thomas Cook has assured the union that no major changes to the current operating model are expected over the short to medium term.

TSSA has been speaking to the company after expressing serious concerns about members' jobs.

"We of course welcome this commitment from Thomas Cook that they have no plans to leave our High Streets. Our members and many customers will be delighted to hear this," said Cortes.

"I'm also pleased that the company seems to feel that for the foreseeable future the Thomas Cook business model is not under undue stress.

"However we remain committed to fight for our members jobs at Thomas Cook and will press the company about the detail of their plans - especially around the number of high street shops facing potential closure in the coming weeks and months.

"It's utterly disgusting that Brexit, a policy developed on the playing fields of Eton, is hurting ordinary hard-working Britons."
