Thrown on the scrapheap on Christmas Eve
Saturday 8th December 2012, 2:50PM GMT.
TWELVE Islanders at a family-owned scrap metal company are facing a bleak Christmas after being told their last working day will be 24 December.
Most of the employees at Picot and Rouillé have been told they will not be taken on by Hunts Jersey – the firm awarded a contract to deal with the States scrap metal.
According to managers only one of the existing work-force has been invited for a second interview with the new company, but the other 11, some of whom have been with the firm for 20 years or more, will work their last day on Christmas Eve.
