Seasonal labour - email your MP_65251

The NFU is asking the government to expand its Seasonal Workers Pilot Scheme in 2019 and convert it to a permanent, fully-functioning scheme which will provide the additional 10,000 workers our farmers and growers need for their businesses this year. With your help we can get our voices heard.

If you’re impacted by labour shortages please contact your MP and ask them to make the case to the Home Office to deliver on long-term access to seasonal labour for farming.

The NFU has created a readymade template with key asks that can be emailed directly to your MP.

All you need to do is CLICK HERE, input your postcode and a template email to your MP will appear. You can add further information to it or send as it is. You will need to be logged in as an NFU member.

    Comment: The biggest problem with shortage of seasonal labour is the poor exchange rate, once brexit is sorted it should settle down
