Manchester United Announce Goodwill Payments For Casual Staff
Manchester United has announced goodwill payments to protect casual workers’ earnings against potential coronavirus match impact.
Manchester United has confirmed that it will pay all its loyal matchday and non-matchday casual workers should Premier League games be cancelled or played behind closed doors for the remainder of this season.
The goodwill gesture by the club is aimed at reducing the financial uncertainty facing its casual workforce, and is in recognition of the crucial role they play in delivering services to supporters.
All Premier League games are currently suspended until at least 30th April. Discussions are ongoing with the Premier League about what will happen to games after that date, including the four remaining games scheduled to be played at Old Trafford this season.
The goodwill payment will be made to all matchday and non-matchday casual workers who have worked for the club in the past three months.
Ed Woodward, Executive Vice Chairman, said: “We rely on our outstanding staff to deliver an exceptional service and experience to fans at Old Trafford. We understand that these are unprecedented circumstances and want to give them security whatever may happen regarding our remaining fixtures this season. We look forward to welcoming back all our supporters – and our colleagues – to Old Trafford as soon as possible.”
