Hackle Security Services Uncovered

Workers left in limbo after firm goes bust

March 9, 2011

WORRIED workers at a Paisley shopping mall face an uncertain future after their employers went bust. Around 20 security staff and cleaners who are based at The Paisley Centre were left stunned when contractors Cosmo Services were plunged into administration following a cash crisis. The workers only learned about the Newbury-based firm’s collapse when their monthly wages failed to appear in their bank accounts. Caring bosses at Prop Invest, which owns The Paisley Centre, stepped in to offer to re-hire the workers, as well as forking out cash to make sure they were paid for the work they had already done. Now grateful employees have thanked their new gaffers for paying their wageand offering them work – but admit they have no idea how long their jobs will last. One worker, who asked not to be named, told the Paisley Daily Express: “We’re stuck in limbo. We are all really grateful that the management at The Paisley Centre have stepped in to make sure we are kept on and that our wages were paid but we haven’t been told how long the positions will last or whether another third-party contractor will be brought in. “We haven’t even been told what our terms and conditions are.

“It was such a shock when we realised we hadn’t been paid our wages. We had no idea that Cosmo were in trouble. “A lot of the staff live month-to-month with their wages and were really worried about how they were going to feed themselves before The Paisley Centre management stepped in. “I just hope the whole thing is resolved soon.” Facilities management firm Cosmo began providing security and cleaning services for The Paisley Centre around 18 months ago. However, the company – which recorded a turnover of £25million last year – was forced to call in administrators RSM Tenon after it emerged that HM Revenue & Customs planned to take them to court over a huge unpaid VAT bill. That decision has left over 700 employees out of work across Britain, with several of their Paisley workers owed thousands of pounds. Bill Reid, acting manager at The Paisley Centre, confirmed that Prop Invest had stepped in to save the workers from the dole queue but admitted it was “too early to say” how long their positions would be guaranteed for.

He added: “Prop Invest found out that Cosmo Services were experiencing serious financial problems and proactively took steps to make sure the staff were protected by offering them employment. “The company is also going to make sure they are paid and re-employed right away. “While the staff were originally concerned about the safety of their positions, they are delighted that Prop Invest has stepped in. “This is the best possible outcome from a difficult situation.” As well as their Paisley operations, Cosmo took care of security for the Plaza mall in East Kilbride and have offices in Glasgow, Peterborough, Newbury, London, Crewe and Wolverhampton. Last month, HM Revenue & Customs issued a winding-up petition in respect of Cosmo’s outstanding VAT bill. Jeremy Woodside, one of the joint administrators appointed to try to turn the company around, said: “We are currently in the process of contacting the large workforce to inform them of the situation as February salaries have not been paid. “The company had been speaking to various investors over the course of the past few weeks but, unfortunately, no new investment had been secured. “We are also in discussions with a number of interested parties over a sale of the business and assets and would encourage any other potential buyers to get in contact with us on 0161 834 3313.”
