Asda Wisbech to close for four hours today and Saturday due to workers striking over cut hours and ‘toxic management’

A supermarket will be closed for parts of the Easter weekend as 170 of its workers go on strike as they say their hours have been cut and noticed an increase in poor management culture.

Asda in Wisbech is closed from 10am-2pm today and Saturday, though pickets will be continually ongoing across the 48 hours.

Workers say they are also angry about poor levels of training and support for their job roles, the equal pay claim dragging on for years, health, safety and fire safety issues being ignored and a lack of collective bargaining with GMB Union.

Keith Dixon, GMB regional organiser, said: “Asda Wisbech workers are forced to endure cuts to hours, non-existent training, toxic management and multiple health, safety and fire failings.

“They’re fighting back and will take to the picket lines this Easter.

“Asda Wisbech workers are standing up for themselves and this once proud store, which is being left to rot.”
