Up to 6,000 jobs could go at Whitbread

Wed, 23/09/2020

Whitbread has started consultations that could lead to the loss of 6,000 jobs at the owner of Premier Inn. The UK hotels sector has been hit particularly hard by the Covid-19 pandemic, with government restrictions forcing all hotels to close during the lockdown and a big reduction in the numbers of international travellers visiting the country this year. Whitbread employs more than 35,000 people in more than 1,200 Premier Inn hotels and restaurants across the UK.
