GMB COMMENTS ON REPORTS ASDA AND SAINSBURY'S IN TALKS OVER MERGER DEAL
GMB, the union for ASDA workers, has commented on reports Asda and Sainsbury's are in talks over a merger.
Tim Roache, GMB General Secretary said:
“Our first priority is to safeguard the job of every single ASDA member, both in stores and in distribution. We are demanding an urgent meeting with ASDA to get the answers and assurances our members need and deserve.
“GMB will be making sure the voices of supermarket workers are not lost amidst all the talk of mergers and acquisitions. We should never forget these companies’ empires are built upon the hard work of their employees.
"Rest assured we will be exploring every available legal avenue to protect our members’ jobs."
