Usdaw launching recruitment campaign for Lidl distribution workers

USDAW is launching a recruitment campaign in Lidl after the company refused to discuss recognition.

Usdaw, which represents shop and distribution workers, says the company has refused requests for talks and told the union that it chooses “not to formally recognise trade unions,” even though many of its staff are trade union members.

Usdaw general secretary-elect Paddy Lillis said: “It is very unfortunate that the company continues to refuse to allow our union officials on site to talk to staff in a grown-up and civilised way about the benefits of joining Usdaw.”

Union activists are conducting a recruitment drive today, tomorrow and Monday at Lidl distribution depots in Exeter, Devon; Enfield, north London; Wednesbury, West Midlands; Aycliffe, County Durham; Livingston, West Lothian; Belvedere, south-east London and Runcorn, Cheshire.
