Cameron House jobs under threat as a result of fatal fire

Staff were told at a meeting at Dumbarton Football Club on Thursday

Hundreds of staff at Cameron House Hotel in Loch Lomond face losing their jobs following last month’s fire which claimed the lives of two guests.

It is reported that around 300 jobs are at risk including 150 staff that are on zero-hours contracts. With those 150 being told that there will be no hours in the short term, however they have been paid up until the middle of January.

On Thursday, staff were told at a meeting at Dumbarton Football Club a consultation process would be launched.

The hotel’s remaining 150 employees which includes golf course, marina and ground staff – are unaffected.

A hotel source told the Glasgow Evening Times: “The rationale is that a big portion of the facility is out of action and clearly there is a an enormous loss of revenue as that is the main driver of the business.”

Guests Simon Midgley, 32, and Richard Dyson, 38, from London, died in the fire on December 18 2017.

Investigations into its cause are still ongoing.
