Morrisons to close supermarkets on Boxing Day - Usdaw urges retailers to give staff a proper festive break

Date: 10 August 2021 Usdaw welcomed the announcement that Morrisons will close their supermarkets on Boxing Day to say thank you to their staff.
Usdaw National Officer Joanne McGuiness said: “The last year-and-a-half has been unlike any other. The pandemic meant shopworkers stepped up and kept essential services running. We welcome Morrisons doing the right thing by their staff with the closure of supermarkets on Boxing Day.

“Key workers have done so much this year and we are asking retailers to give their staff the longest possible break over the festive season to provide them with a well-deserved breather. We don’t think this is too much to ask for.”
