UK invites 10,500 truck drivers, poultry workers for short term visa

UK invites 10,500 truck drivers, poultry workers for short term visa
September 28
07:06 2021

The United Kingdom (UK) says it will grant 10,500 short-term work visas to foreign truck drivers and poultry workers until Christmas 2021.

According to a statement issued by the Department for Transport over the weekend, 5,000 heavy goods vehicle (HGV) drivers will be able to come to work in the UK for 3 months in the run-up to Christmas to provide “short-term relief for the haulage industry”.

Some 5,500 poultry workers will also be added to the visa scheme to “avoid any potential further pressures on the food industry during this exceptional period.

The UK government said recruitment for additional short-term truck drivers and poultry workers will begin in October with visas valid until December 24, Christmas eve.

According to reports, the shortage of truck drivers in the UK has been exacerbated by the pandemic, an ageing workforce, poor working conditions, and post-Brexit immigration policy.

Grant Shapps, UK transport secretary, said the visa scheme would ease the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on the country’s haulage and food industry.

“This package of measures builds on the important work we have already done to ease this global crisis in the UK, and this government continues to do everything we can to help the haulage and food industries contend with the HGV (heavy goods vehicle) driver shortage,” Shapps said.

“We are acting now, but the industries must also play their part with working conditions continuing to improve, and the deserved salary increases continuing to be maintained for companies to retain new drivers.

“After a very difficult 18 months, I know how important this Christmas is for all of us and that’s why we’re taking these steps at the earliest opportunity to ensure preparations remain on track.”

    I’ve been living in Portugal for almost three years, I currently work driving COBUS 3000 extra wide buses at Lisbon Airport. Ryanair Airline pays me a measly €700 monthly for eight hours of service a day.
    I’m Brazilian, I came to study in Portugal and I need to work, I have more than 5 years of experience in driving non-articulated trucks of up to 40 tons. Including a specialization course in the transport of hazardous products and fuels. With three years of experience in Liquefied Petroleum Gas transportation.
    While I present myself with the Portuguese (European) document, I am considered. If I present my Brazilian document, I am not considered.
    While this stupid British and European situation still persists, they will have more and more difficulties with the aging population and few young people hiding behind diplomas to not work, while creating exclusive and unattractive environments for foreign workers. In the end, it’s not just about visas or lack of toilets.
