Asda needs to think again over forced contract changes that will see their staff lose out on flexibility and holidays.
Many workers have reported that they feel pressured to sign this new contract by their managers. It is disappointing that Asda has left workers with little choice because if they do not sign, they will be forced to leave without any redundancy package. This has left many employees fearing for their jobs and their futures.
Thousands of workers simply won’t be flexible in the way that Asda bosses demand and imposing a new contract won’t change workers’ childcare, caring, studying, family and other outside work commitments.
In response to a recent consultative ballot, 93% of respondents told GMB Union that they did not agree with the contract changes which were being forced on them.
It is deeply concerning that such a large employer in Sheffield is leaving their staff with no choice other than to accept these new contracts or risk losing their job. I’m calling on Asda to think again, work constructively with the union, and secure a decent future for their staff.
