Following the collapse of Thomas Cook Airlines, passengers received the news that refunds for their disrupted holidays might come after a two-month wait. Earlier today, an announcement by the auditors was made noting that an investigation is ongoing following the protests of hundreds of Thomas Cook employees. The airline’s staff, who protested at the conservative party conference in Manchester this week, claim that they don’t understand how the group’s other European carriers (namely, Condor in Germany) are continuing to fly when the UK based carrier has been left to die. Following these protests, a legal challenge has been announced after hundreds of Thomas Cook staff signed on to take legal action against the company, following claims that the airline has not fulfilled its duties as an employer. The challenge is being fronted with the union Unite, which is expected to sign around 100 more crew before the end of the week.
