NET-A-PORTER FACES CHRISTMAS STRIKE AS GMB ANNOUNCES 22 DAYS OF ACTION
Given how much money the company makes, it’s only fair that a few crumbs from the table get sent to the people generating this income, says GMB
GMB, the union for retail and distribution, has this morning announced that luxury fashion brand Yoox Net-a-Porter will be rocked by twenty-two days of strike action at their Charlton depot.
As previously announced, GMB members are in dispute with their employer about pay , with current proposals leaving members without a pay rise for the first six months of the financial year.
Hundreds of workers are now set to take a total of 22 days of action over November and December, which will affect the distribution of online purchases in the run up to Christmas .
Mick Butler, GMB Regional Organiser said:
“Net-a-Porter is a luxury brand that sells high-end fashion for large sums of money.
“None of their operations would be possible though without our members working hard to ensure these online purchases get to their destinations on time.
“Given how much money the company makes, it’s only fair that a few crumbs from the table get sent to the people generating this income.
“If Yoox Net-a-Porter don’t want their operations halted at what is undoubtedly their busiest time of year, GMB are prepared to meet at any time to discuss a decent pay rise for our members.”
