Respect for Shopworkers week


I'm backing Usdaw's campaign for respect for shopworkers as part of the Freedom From Fear Campaign, which seeks to prevent violence, threats and abuse directed at retail staff.  Usdaw members are highlighting the problems faced by staff during Respect for Shopworkers Week, which runs from 9 to 13 November.

Too often retail employees are confronted with violence, threats and abuse and it is really important we stand together and ask people to respect shopworkers especially as we approach the busy Christmas shopping period and the Black Friday sales.

I support Usdaw's call for extra protection for shopworkers and was personally shocked by the scenes of chaos and violence we saw during Black Friday last year. I will continue to campaign with Usdaw to provide shopworkers the support they need and deserve.  We must give a clear message that abusing or assaulting workers who are serving the public is totally unacceptable.
