This is an M&S victimisation

Issue No. 2117

A worker at Marks & Spencer who revealed plans to cut redundancy pay for the firm’s 70,000 staff has been suspended and is facing a disciplinary hearing.

The worker revealed plans to reduce redundancy payouts by up to 25 percent.

The GMB union said it feared the company was preparing to make job cuts because of the changes to redundancy pay, which it wants to introduce from next month.

General secretary Paul Kenny said, “We are fearful that job cuts are on the way at M&S. Why else would they cut their existing policy?”
