Relocation Rumors Send William Hill Staffers out in Protest

Share this

Gaming Intelligence has reported that disciplinary action is facing some of online gambling giant William Hill's online managers following a walkout of nearly 200 staffers. There have been rumors that William Hill would be moving operations to Gibraltar or the United Kingdom and that caused the protest by staffers.

William Hill executives, reported by The Sun, flew to Israel to prevent the strike action with "peace talks." A strike has the potential to damage William Hill's online gambling business operations. Nearly all of the marketing and customer relations operations for the company are handled in Tel Aviv and employees have grown more and more concerned about their jobs.

William Hill issued a statement:

“The vast majority of employees of the marketing team in Tel Aviv have good working relationships with the business and with colleagues across William Hill Online,” the company said in a statement, as reported by Gaming Intelligence.

“William Hill Online is committed to its sales and marketing operation in Tel Aviv and contrary to media reports has no intention of relocating this operation. William Hill Online can confirm that this situation is not directly affecting the availability of any consumer facing websites at present within the Group. There will be a further update as necessary.”

Eyal Sanoff, William Hill’s chief marketing officer in Tel Aviv, resigned his position at the end of last month.
