Action suspended at JJB sports

Issue No. 2032

Industrial action and demonstrations at JJB Sports in Wigan have been suspended.

The GMB union entered talks before Christmas following a four to one vote by JJB workers for action over the sacking of GMB shop steward Chris Riley. The talks have now been adjourned until 11 January.

JJB Sports management have dropped disciplinary charges against GMB convener John Stewart. GMB organiser Sandra Blight said, “We have made progress with these talks but we have a long way to go to normalise industrial relations at JJB Sports depot.

“There will also be internal discussions in GMB as to the best way of dealing with the sacking of GMB shop steward Chris Riley.”
