GMB, the union for Asda workers, is celebrating a huge win after the Court of Appeal upheld the ruling that Asda store staff can compare their roles with those in the distribution centres.

The landmark judgment follows the union’s victory in the Employment Tribunal and Employment Appeal Tribunal against Asda’s attempts to block the legal claims of tens of thousands of workers.

Tim Roache, GMB General Secretary, said:

“We welcome this decision, we’ll always pursue justice and equality for our members and this decision is undoubtedly the right one.

“We know we’re not all the way there, there are more hurdles to jump in this process and as always we remain ready to negotiate should Asda want to get round the table."
