Saturday 13th December 11am outside M&S Swindon Town Centre.
At M&S distribution centre more than 400 of the workers at the Wincanton depot, which operates as part of the British brand’s distribution chain, are employed by an employment agency, 24.7 Recruitment. They are then formally employed through a further company, called Tempay Ltd, and are paid the minimum wage.
But another 300 workers doing the same job are employed directly by Wincanton at a rate of £8.45 per hour – £2 an hour more.
We are going to demonstrate outside the M&S store in Regent Street on two occassions(13th and 20th). We are using the outfits and leaflets used by the GMB.
