Asda and Usdaw sign convenience recognition agreement

Asda and trade union Usdaw have announced a collective bargaining agreement for the union to represent hourly-paid staff employed in the convenience stores and Leon restaurants that Asda recently acquired from EG Group.

Covering Euro Garages and Leon Restaurants, the agreement will see Usdaw negotiate on pay, hours and holidays annually for hourly-paid colleagues employed in the 356 convenience stores and 77 Leon restaurant sites in the UK.

With a strong track record of representing workers in convenience retail, the union already represents staff in the 119 convenience stores Asda acquired from the Co-op in 2022.

Hayley Tatum, Asda’s chief people and corporate affairs officer, said: “As Usdaw already represents the 2,300 colleagues in the convenience stores we acquired from the Co-op Group, it is a natural progression to recognise them as our partner for the sites we have acquired from EG Group. We look forward to working collaboratively with them to deliver positive outcomes for colleagues in this important and growing area of our business.”

Asda’s existing union agreements with Usdaw in Northern Ireland and the GMB in depots and retail stores remain unchanged.

Jayne Allport, Usdaw national officer, said: “We are pleased to have reached this agreement with Asda. It is a positive step forward for Usdaw members within the EG Group of stores and Leon restaurants who will now benefit from full representation and collective bargaining under this new agreement.”
