Respect for local Co-operative Shopworkers

Friday, November 29, 2013

To support the USDAW union’s ‘Respect for Shopworkers’ campaign Meg Munn MP paid a visit to the local Co-operative store on Constable Road in Gleadless Valley.

During her visit Meg discussed with store manager Kath and her staff how they work with the local police to deal with retail crime and anti-social behaviour via an innovative information sharing arrangement. Kath also offered Meg the opportunity to sample some of the Co-ops brand new breads and pastries, and Meg happily obliged.

The issue of respecting shopworkers is important given that research reveals that every minute of the working day a shop worker is verbally abused, threatened with violence or physically attacked. Meg was particularly keen to highlight the ‘Freedom from Fear’ strand of the campaign which calls on the government to ensure that their policies and actions help tackle retail crime and anti-social behaviour.

Meg said:

“It is important to focus on the effect that incidents of crime has on members of staff, it can be a frightening experience and lead to a long-term impact. Shop workers are entitled to respect and it is crucial that we continue to tackle retail crime locally through strong partnerships so that we can give them the confidence to speak out and not accept abuse as part of the job.”
