New Year's Day Working in Scotland

Usdaw is campaigning for all large shops in Scotland to close on New Year’s Day

Shopworkers deserve a decent rest on New Year's Day

We believe that our members should be able to enjoy New Year’s Day with their friends and families.

We understand the importance of being able to recover following the busy run up to the festive period.

From what members have told us, only 3% of Scottish retail workers are happy to work on New Year’s Day.

Campaign Success - New Year's Day closure in Scotland

After 14 years of campaigning, Usdaw has secured a Scottish Government consultation into large stores closing on New Year's Day. This is a real chance to secure a decent break for Scottish retail workers. If you live or work in Scotland, add your views to the consultation.
