Clive Lewis For Norwich South
This week is National Respect for Shopworkers week, and I’m supporting Usdaw Union’s call for a new law to protect retail staff.
A recent survey has shown that violence and abuse towards shop staff has doubled during the Covid-19 pandemic. This is unacceptable. These workers are doing their best in difficult conditions to make sure we can continue to buy essential goods and access shops.
Action to protect shop workers is needed. So far, over 70,000 have signed USDAW’s parliamentary petition calling for this to happen. Please take a moment to add your name too if you support this important cause: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/328621 #FreedomFromFear
