Statement from our General Secretary Tim Roache about the merger speculation between Asda/Sainsbury’s: “Our first priority is to safeguard the job of every single ASDA member, both in stores and in distribution. We are demanding an urgent meeting with ASDA to get the answers and assurances our members need and deserve. “GMB will be making sure the voices of supermarket workers are not lost amidst all the talk of mergers and acquisitions.

Our member Sarah was horrifically sexually assaulted in the back of her ambulance. She bravely told her story because she didn’t want anyone else to face what she has. Today she came to London to make sure MPs backed a new law. And they did. Absolute hero. #ProtectTheProtectors Holly Lynch Chris Bryant MP Judith Cummins MP
