Asda faces threat of strike action

Like Tesco, Asda is facing the threat of strike action in the run-up to Christmas.

The GMB Union is balloting workers over what it describes as the supermarket’s failure to make a meaningful pay offer for distribution staff.  The ballot closes on 20 December.

In a statement, Nadine Houghton, GMB national officer, said:  “Asda workers turned up throughout the Covid pandemic risking their lives to keep the nation fed – as well as helping the company turn a profit of almost £500 million.

“Staff who saw colleagues lose their lives to Covid are not having their legitimate demands for a pay rise treated seriously. Asda now say GMB members pay claim is ‘unaffordable’ and yet their hard work and sacrifice helped directors trouser almost £10 million between them.

“It’s a disgrace – we urge Asda workers to fight for what they deserve and vote YES for a ballot for industrial action.”
