Save our Shops

Usdaw is campaigning for the Government to take urgent action to 'Save Our Shops'

About the campaign

In recent years, hundreds of thousands of jobs have been lost in retail, yet the Government is doing little to tackle the crisis on the high street and in our local communities.

Key Campaign Aims

Usdaw is calling for action to breathe life back into the high street. We are calling for:
  • Economic measures to create a more level playing field between the High Street and online retailing.
  • Fair pay and job security for retail workers - a minimum wage of £10 per hour, tackle zero-hours and short-hours contracts, investment in skills and training.
  • Government action to protect jobs in the retail sector. Retail jobs are real jobs – retail is a key part of the economy providing jobs and income for millions of families.
