HOTEL workers say they have been "dumped on the scrapheap" by bosses amid plans to cut nearly 90 roles. 

Staff at the Holiday Inn Glasgow Airport were told of sweeping redundancy plans last month as chiefs struggle to deal with a substantial fall in guests due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Union leaders say 88 out of 92 employees will lose their jobs with staff invited to apply for limited "minimum wage" roles instead.

One worker hit out at LGH bosses, who manage the hotel, accusing senior staff of showing a "lack of compassion" during crunch talks.

"It is absolutely ridiculous and they have gone about this terribly," the Glasgow woman, who asked not to be named, said. 

"We were all placed on furlough in March but didn't really hear anything until last month when suddenly they asked us to join a Zoom call.

"The manager showed no compassion to us and didn't even look at us, he just read from a slide show.

"It is our livelihood they are cutting and it felt like they couldn't care less." 

It's understood the only workers who will retain their positions are senior staff members, including the head chef. 

Another Glasgow worker, 38, revealed she has had to move back in with her parents because of the impending job cuts. 

She said: "It is always the workers who do everything who are the first to go. How can they expect to run a hotel with just the senior bosses, who will be on the most money. 

"It is terrible and we have been tossed aside by them."

Bryan Simpson, industrial organiser at Unite, who represent the workers, said: "To sack 88 out of 92 workers and then have them to fight-it-out for eight minimum wage roles is not just morally unacceptable it may bring the company into legal disrepute for breaches of well-established employment law. 

"Our members at Holiday Inn are refusing to accept this treatment and are fighting back collectively through their trade union. They shall be putting forward alternative proposals to avoid compulsory redundancies. If LGH Hotel Management want to avoid any further reputational damage we would urge them to rethink their plans and to listen to their workforce."

A spokesperson for Holiday Inn Glasgow Airport said: “This is a very difficult time for the whole industry and it will take time for travel and tourism to return to pre-coronavirus levels. 

"As a result we have launched a consultation to resize the hotel team which unfortunately is likely to involve redundancies.

 “We have protected and retained our colleagues’ jobs for as long as possible and we continue to look at all viable options to avoid potential redundancies.”
