Usdaw to target Lidl's distribution centres

SHOPWORKERS’ union Usdaw will target distribution depots which serve supermarket giant Lidl today in a campaign for workers’ rights.

Usdaw says staff at the depots have raised a catalogue of workplace problems including poor health and safety, work overload, high-performance targets, short notice for shifts, unpaid overtime, and discrimination and bullying by managers.

General secretary Paddy Lillis said: “Usdaw regularly receives feedback from Lidl’s distribution staff, who are generally unhappy about their treatment at work and say morale can be pretty low.

“Usdaw’s campaign is based on their concerns and the real experiences of Lidl workers.”

Depots targeted today are at Enfield and Belvedere (London), Clyst Honiton (Exeter), Wednesbury (West Midlands), Aycliffe (County Durham) and Runcorn (Cheshire).

Livingston in West Lothian in Scotland will be targeted tomorrow.
