GMB, the union for retail workers, will hold a protest on Monday 12th September outside the Marks & Spencer department store in Brighton over changes to the terms and conditions of 11,000 staff, including the scrapping of the Sunday and bank holiday premiums as well as the cutting of 500 jobs from its London headquarters in Paddington, West London. GMB members working in M&S are disgusted by the attitude of the company towards them.

The details of the protest are as follows:

11am Monday 12th September,
Outside M&S store
195 Western Road
Brighton
BN1 2BJ

Paul Maloney, GMB regional secretary, said β€œMarks and Spencer are showing total disrespect for their workers.  GMB are to stage a protest outside M&S during the week of the TUC conference in Brighton.

M&S who masquerade as the ethical employer, has again been exposed putting profit before people. GMB has exposed the M&S distribution centre in Swindon where staff were employed on zero hour contracts through an agency and on minimum pay.”
