WHILE I understand the city’s delight in the new stadium finally getting under way, I have not seen any mention of the people who appear to have lost their jobs.

They had been left to find out by media and other people, and now these guys have until Christmas to find a new job. Most of them have worked there for several years.

Why did City of York City council not find these people jobs until the stadium was built? They are all doing the same roles as will be offered in a year’s time to other people.

Let’s recognise these people and give them a bit of praise for their past roles at the site.
