The GMB is organising a national day of action which is being led by our National Young Members’ Network. We will be protesting outside M&S Simply Food stores which are franchised out to Select Service Partner UK Ltd (SSP).
M&S are one of a few big brands who pay SSP to operate their outlets in their name in the hope of avoiding the public outrage of low pay and poor employment terms and conditions.
GMB is calling for #£10 Now!
This protest is being organised in solidarity alongside our sister union in the US - SEIU whose members are on strike from fast food outlets on 10th November in New York and in support of their $15 per hour living wage claim.
If you can, please join us at our demos on:
Tuesday 10th November
9.00am - M&S Simply Food - White Rose Shopping Centre – Leeds (LS11 8LX)
1.00pm M&S - Fargate - Sheffield City Centre
We need your help! We need to get as big a presence as possible at both demos. We will have placards, banners and leaflets. If you are available to come and help support our colleagues in Swindon and the US then please do so.
Please contact Rachel Harrison on 0345 337 7777 if you will be at one of the demos
