Sainsbury's and Argos restructuring plans - Usdaw to enter into consultations to secure the best deal for staff

Date: 05 November 2020 Shopworkers’ trade union Usdaw is to enter into consultation meetings with Sainsbury’s/Argos management over their proposed restructuring.
Dave Gill – Usdaw National Officer says: “Sainsbury’s/Argos has briefed us on their plans to restructure the business, which includes the proposed permanent closure of a number of Argos stores and counter services in Sainsbury’s supermarkets that were closed in March, at the beginning of the first lockdown. We will now enter into meaningful consultation to examine the proposals.

“Usdaw is confident of securing redeployment within the business for vast majority of staff affected. Our priority is to safeguard their jobs and achieve the best deal possible for staff. In the meantime we are providing Usdaw members with the support and advice they need.”
