A strike ballot in supermarket chain Asda’s 20 distribution depots across Britain is underway. Ballot papers were issued this week and the union expects to announce the result in the week beginning 19 June.
GMB union members working in the depots want to secure collective bargaining rights covering pay, conditions and union facilities. They are also unhappy at the non-payment of bonuses.
