GMB Union, the union for Wilko workers, has today called on the company to give their hard working and loyal staff the Jubilee bank holiday off.

The UK will soon be celebrating The Queen's Platinum Jubilee, with a national bank holiday announced for 2 and 3 June.

Wilko's workforce has kept the company running throughout pandemic - putting their lives on the line to keep the company afloat

Staff now want to know why they aren't being given the same opportunities to celebrate as other workers.

Natalie Grayson, GMB Organiser, said:

"It's un-patriotic for an all-British brand to make a profit from selling Jubilee party goods whilst denying their staff the bank holiday.

"GMB members are gobsmacked the company has made this decision, leaving them unable to celebrate with their community, family, and friends.

"We’re calling on Wilko to do the right thing and give their workers the full jubilee bank holiday."
