New Year's Day Working - Email Your MP

Recently, the Scottish Government has rejected Usdaw’s calls for large shops to close on New Year’s Day. The announcement is a slap in the face for retail workers who have worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic and deserve a much needed day off.

The Government’s decision completely overlooks the views of Scottish retail workers. Over 1,400 workers responded to the Government’s consultation with nine in ten respondents supporting legislation to close shops on New Year’s Day.

Please could you use the link below to email your MSP, informing them of your disappointment with the Government’s decision and asking that they raise this issue.

The information you provide on the email may be shared with your MP and/ or Government. The data that we collect about you in the email will be stored securely and will only be retained for the duration of the campaign. For further information see Usdaw’s Privacy Notice.
