Promotional merchandise specialist Pellacraft has become one of the first Nottinghamshire businesses to back a campaign supporting terminally ill employees in the workplace.
The Mansfield company, which supplies corporate gifts such as pens, mugs, keyrings, notepads and T-shirts, has signed the “Dying to Work” charter, which was launched in February and now protects more than 60,000 UK employees.
It has also assisted the campaign by providing promotional merchandise and developing the campaign’s website.
The charter was set up by the Trades Union Congress (TUC) following the case of Jacci Woodcook, a 58-year-old sales manager from Derbyshire who was forced out of her job after being diagnosed with terminal breast cancer.
The TUC has asked employers to sign up to its voluntary charter to stop cases like Ms Woodcook’s happening in the future.
In lending its support to the campaign, Pellacraft joins Nottinghamshire-based organisations such as E.ON, Central College Nottingham, Nottingham City Homes and Nottinghamshire County Council, which was the first county council to sign up to the charter.
