Usdaw members strike again at Sainsbury’s Waltham Point

Trade union Usdaw has called its members at Sainsbury’s Waltham Point distribution centre out on strike today (22nd August) and Sunday (25th August).

The dispute over changes to the attendance policy has been going on for some time, and there have already be two one-day stoppages by Usdaw members.

Nigel Scully, Usdaw divisional officer said: “Individuals do get ill and/or injured and need to be in a position where they can recover without having to worry whether they will be getting paid. The company’s changes mean that our members, including many who have given significant years service, could quickly end up without any sick pay, meaning that financial worries are likely to be added to any other issues they are going through.”
