A number of traders have received letters threatening to terminate their licences. It would appear that a common feature of these cases is the running of a stall by a family member of the registered stallholder.The letters were sent out last week and give 14 days notice of intention to terminate.
We are not sure why these letters have suddenly appeared although it has been suggested they are part of an ongoing campaign to convince traders to take up leases. Have you received such a letter? If so, would you like to join other traders in a group response?
We are not aware of all the details of these cases, however we are uncomfortable with the intimidatory aspect of the market's approach and we urge any affected trader to contact Greg Smith, Ivano, or John Magno.
