GMB Trade Union - Asos boss Nick Beighton steps down

Under Mr Beighton’s tenure profits rocket while hard-pressed workers were denied toilet breaks

GMB, the union for Asos workers, has responded to the departure of company chief Nick Beighton. 

Will Dalton, GMB Organiser, said: 

“During his tenure Nick Beighton has seen profits soar off the backs of hard-pressed workers. 

"The company has grown substantially during the pandemic, with income sky-rocketing while its warehouse workers are forced into high pick rates and refused toilet breaks. 

“At the height of covid, terrified workers branded the packed warehouse a ‘cradle of disease’. 

“GMB Union will be contacting Mr Beighton’s replacement demanding they recognise the GMB Union and the voice of Asos workers.”
