Bassetlaw MP John Mann has joined with retail workers to call for an end to abuse in the workplace. The shopworkers’ union Usdaw’s Freedom From Fear Campaign seeks to prevent violence, threats and abuse directed at retail staff.
John Mann MP said “Too often retail employees are confronted with abuse whilst simply doing their job. It’s important that we stand together and ask people to respect shop workers, especially as we approach the busy Christmas shopping period.”
John Mann continued: “We must give a clear message that abusing or assaulting workers who are serving the public is totally unacceptable. No one should have to go to work expecting abuse.”
