UKFT is collating an industry response to the Migration Advisory Committee’s call for evidence on a Salary Threshold and Points-Based System.
The call for evidence asks for individuals and organisations to contribute to enable the Government to define the future system of salary thresholds and the level at which they could be set.
UKFT believes that the existing salary threshold of £30,000 is too high for vital roles in our industry such as sewing machinists and weavers.
“We are encouraging all businesses who rely on talented overseas workers to take this opportunity to make their voices heard by the Government about the true impact that these changes could have on their workforce and businesses,” said Adam Mansell, CEO of UKFT.
“Our online template features key questions from the call for evidence and should only take around 5 minutes to complete but will be essential in representing the effect of changes to the migration policy on our sector.”
The survey is available here and UKFT will be submitting the responses to the Committee on behalf of the industry.
The deadline for responses is 11th October. If you have any further questions, please email Tara.Hounslea@ukft.org or call 0207 843 9460.
