Usdaw members to strike at Sainsbury’s Waltham Cross

Trade union Usdaw has given notice that its members at Sainsbury’s Waltham Point distribution centre will take part in a 24 hour strike on 25 July in a dispute over changes to the attendance policy.

Usdaw divisional officer Nigel Scully 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.”
