RETAIL BULLETIN – JANUARY 2021

FAO ALL GMB MEMBERS WILKO STORES

Dear Member,

Following a meeting with Wilko Senior Management we have been informed of a number of proposed changes within the Wilko stores.

The proposals are as follows:

• Removal of the Assistant Manager role where sales aren’t high enough to need two senior managers. There’ll be another Team Supervisor role added in those stores.
• Reducing the number of hours worked by team members, which could result in some redundancies. This affects 100 stores
• Gradually changing contracts for all Level 1 and Level 3 team members, so that instead of having 47 different contracts ranging from three hours to 39 hours, there’ll eventually be just six, ranging from six to 35 hours a week and, from February, all new team members will be recruited onto one of these contracts.

Briefings have been given at all stores affected.

The GMB will be meeting weekly with Wilko to agree the way forward and we will be providing representation and support for all our members at a store level and keep you updated on progress.

If you have any questions or concerns contact your GMB Representative or GMB Office.
