Simon Jersey Team Hears From Both Sides Of EU Debate

All of the staff at Simon Jersey were recently given the chance to make a more informed decision about the EU referendum with visits from MPs presenting both sides of the debate.

All staff were given the opportunity to grill the MPs and get all the facts they need before deciding which way to vote on 23rd June.

First to visit were Boris Johnson and Priti Patel putting forward the views of the Leave campaign, followed shortly afterwards by Hyndburn MP Graham Jones who presented the reasons he will be voting to stay in the EU.

Both visits included a short presentation followed by a question and answer session that gave the full team the opportunity to ask questions about how they, their families and the UK as a whole might be affected by how the country votes later this month.

The visit by Boris Johnson, who was Mayor of London during London 2012, also gave him the opportunity to see the suits Simon Jersey has created for Team GB to wear at formal events at the upcoming Rio Olympic Games.

James Saunders, managing director of Simon Jersey, said:

“There are many complex issues to consider ahead of the referendum. We believe that it’s our responsibility to present both sides of the debate to our employees so that they can make an informed decision.
Our team asked all the MPs a range of tough questions which we hope means they feel better prepared to vote on 23rd June.”
Kiel James, senior warehouse supervisor, added:

“I was very uncertain before about which way to vote, but knew it was a really important decision that would affect generations to come. After the Q&A sessions I feel like I will be making an informed choice on Thursday.”
More than half a million people go to work each day wearing Simon Jersey uniforms. The company will supply Team GB for Rio 2016 with formal suits as well as the outfits they’ll wear in the closing parade, set to be watched by up to a billion people.
