GMB UNION VUNERABLE MEMBERS ALLOWED REDUCED HOURS

Vulnerable colleagues who want to work reduced hours

We know that many colleagues who fall into the vulnerable category would like to continue working, but on reduced hours. We’re happy for them to explore this option, but it must be approved by their GSM/SM and their SMP, who will make sure the new working arrangement is recorded accurately.

ASDA MESSAGE FROM HAYLEY TATUM FOR GMB UNION ASDA MEMBERS

Food supply chain is teh message for ASDA members

For the moment, if colleagues are being asked for their occupation by schools or nurseries they should quote ‘Food Supply Chain – Asda’.

Today has been an even busier day in our stores, if we can imagine that, and it has been especially challenging in central London. Following today's IMG we have reviewed what steps we need to take to maintain everyone’s safety and have taken some decisions today that I wanted to share with you.
