GMB Trade Union - Wisbech Asda workers in two day Easter strike

Asda Wisbech workers will strike this Easter weekend on one of the supermarket’s busiest periods.

Where: Asda Wisbech, Northend, Leverington Road, Wisbech PE13 1PE

When: 10am – 2pm both days will be busiest periods for picket lines, though pickets will be continually for 48 hours

Around 170 Wisbech Asda workers will walk out from 00:01 to 23:59 on Friday 29 and Saturday 30 March – Easter weekend.

The strike has been caused by cuts to hours and an increase in a bullying management culture.

Workers are also angry about poor levels of training and support for their job roles, the equal pay claim dragging on for years, health, safety and fire safety issues being ignored and a lack of collective bargaining with GMB Union.

Keith Dixon, GMB Regional Organiser said:

“Asda Wisbech workers are forced to endure cuts to hours, non-existent training, toxic management and multiple health, safety and fire failings.

“They’re fighting back and will take to the picket lines this Easter.

“Asda Wisbech workers are standing up for themselves and this once proud store, which is being left to rot.
