Asda needs to think again over forced contract changes that will see their staff, including staff at the Estover store, lose out on flexibility and holidays.

Many workers have reported that they feel pressured to sign this new contract by their managers. It is disappointing that Asda has left workers with little choice because if they do not sign, they will be forced to leave without any redundancy package. This has left many employees fearing for their jobs and their futures.

Imposing a new contract won’t change workers’ childcare, caring, studying, family and other outside work commitments. I’m concerned that ASDA is leaving their staff with no choice other than to accept these new contracts or risk losing their job.

Many ASDA workers with caring commitments are going to be severely hit by any loss in flexibility – this is an awful position for the company to put dedicated staff in.
