Closed petition Create short-term visas for skilled abattoir workers to meet labour shortages
The Government should create short-term visas for skilled abattoir workers so they can travel to the UK to work in abattoirs and meet current labour shortages.
To allow a relatively small number of skilled foreign abattoir works into the UK, so they can alleviate staff shortages in pig processing plants and clear the increasing backlog of pigs on UK farms. This will help to save all those pigs from being killed and incinerated with all the associated stresses for both animals and the people who have to cull those animals and the waste of food. Farmers who have bred and reared high-welfare animals are appalled at the lack of action on the situation.
