McCluskey: Sports Direct’s workers’ rep must fight for permanent contracts

Commenting on the announcement by Sports Direct that it has appointed a workers’ rep to its boardroom, Len McCluskey said:

“While Sports Direct’s move to put workers on its board is welcome, they should be elected in an open and transparent process, in order to convince the workforce that its interests will be fully represented in the boardroom.

“I hope his first act will be to persuade the company to end its reliance on agency workers by moving all its workers on to permanent, secure contracts. I also urge him to meet Unite as soon as possible so that he can be fully briefed on the issues faced by the workforce, including the underpayment of the national minimum wage.”
