This is utterly disgraceful behaviour by the employer and by Community, who need to have a word with themselves if they think this will help a single worker in Barnsley.
GMB represents hundreds of ASOS workers, we’ve been on the gates day in day out and have already forced the company to change some of its appalling employment practices.
It’s been a high profile campaign on the ground and in the press, exposing what’s wrong at ASOS, I’m not surprised they want us to go away.
Unfortunately for ASOS that’s not how it works.
That Community are behaving more like bosses’ lackeys than a union is probably why the company has carved up this nice little deal to give themselves some cover.
Community has turned up for the first time today and is literally having to give away membership - that says it all.
Workers there are as puzzled as anyone as to what they're playing at.
It’s workers, not their bosses, who choose their union – it’s called the right to freedom of association.
We won’t be abandoning our members now, or ever.
