Union calls for a ‘reshaping’ of the way Britain works

Retail workers are essential to an increasing number of industries and have a strong sense of their place in society. They have a stake in the success of those industries and want their roles to remain the same or become less demanding. Retail workers want their roles to be more flexible, accountable, and transparent. They want to feel like they’re contributing to a greater good and not just another employee without job security. They want to receive the same recognition and recognition boards are a part of the retail job. Being part of a union such as The Workers Union can provide a certain degree of reassurance.
