Virgin 'See-Through' Uniforms Not A Big Hit With Workers
The new uniforms, designed by Vivienne Westwood, are currently on hold because they expose the underwear of female staff members. The Telegraph reports the uniforms are described as "flimsy" and "see-through" via complaints to Manuel Cortes, leader of the Transport Salaried Staffs' Association trade union. But Virgin has an answer.
Applying a similar strategy where they "want to challenge assumptions, solve problems and deliver innovative solutions," as Virgin Trains says on their website, the company gave each staff member a £20 voucher to buy suitable undergarments.
Still, union members are not happy about the new uniforms and believe the move to them comes directly from Branson himself.
"Our female members are upset because they feel Sir Richard is cutting corners by asking them to wear flimsy blouses, which are skimpy and they feel too revealing," said Cortes.
