Reinstate Richie Venton
Protest in support of sacked rep Richie Venton outside Ikea Glasgow (Click to enlarge)
Trade unionists held a solidarity demo outside of Ikea Braehead in Glasgow, demanding the reinstatement of sacked Usdaw rep Richie Venton, and the reinstatement of sick workers' wages.
Representatives from the University and College Union, Communication Workers Union, transport union RMT, Unison, teachers' union EIS, the GMB, and others attended.
Workers spoke to shoppers on their way into the store, who shared their anger and disgust at the way Ikea have treated trade union organisers in their store - and at the way in which the company has attacked wages for sick workers during the pandemic.
