Chris Stephens, Member of Parliament for Glasgow South West, has lodged an Early Day Motion in Parliament calling on IKEA to Reinstate Richie Venton and to Reinstate Sick Workers’ Wages – in support of fair pay, conditions, and unimpeded Trade Union organisation for IKEA workers.
We’re appealing to everybody to petition their MP and tell them to support the Early Day Motion – including IKEA workers. Your communication with your MP is strictly private and confidential.
The Motion calls on MPs to the condemn IKEA’s sacking of Usdaw Shop Steward and Convenor, Richie Venton, and oppose the firm’s efforts to attack workers’ rights and strip pay from sick, isolating, and shielding workers. Workers who cannot afford to be sick are more likely to get sick; effective, unimpeded Trade Union representation and full average pay for sick workers are essential in protecting worker safety and public health.
