Usdaw members at Sainsbury's Waltham Point Distribution Centre to take strike action on Thursday 27 June

Date: 26 June 2019 Tomorrow morning from 6am, Usdaw members at Sainsbury’s Waltham Point will take strike action over the company’s changes to the attendance policy. The strike action will last for 24 hours.
Nigel Scully, Usdaw Divisional Officer says: “Usdaw members have been forced to take industrial action in response to the company’s refusal to negotiate on their proposals to change the attendance policy. We remain committed to resolving this dispute as quickly and effectively as possible.
 
“Our members have not taken lightly the decision to strike. We sincerely hope that the company returns to the negotiating table, as soon as possible, with a reasonable offer that could resolve this dispute.”
