Usdaw praises Kellogg’s and Ocado over coronavirus decisions

Usdaw has praised Kellogg’s for guaranteeing staff wages for all staff for twelve weeks and Ocado for paying a 10% bonus to frontline employees. 

Usdaw national officer Dave Gill said: “This decision by Kelloggs provides a great deal of security for staff and some peace of mind in very difficult circumstances. Kellogg’s staff are continuing to work, providing an essential service by helping to feed the country. It is important that our members know the company is backing them and will continue to do so if they fall ill, have to self-isolate or need time to care for loved ones.

“In this time of crisis it is important that essential workers in all sectors are properly looked after. We continue to work with Kellogg’s to ensure staff are working safely and supported at this difficult time.”

Usdaw national officer Daniel Adams said: “It’s a tough time for all those working in the food supply chain at the moment. We are all reliant on the essential service they provide and they deserve our support, respect and appreciation more than ever. So we very much welcome Ocado’s recognition of the work they are doing in difficult times.

“We continue to work with Ocado to ensure employees’ health and wellbeing are protected throughout these unprecedented times. We also call on customers to stay calm and respect all workers who are providing vital support to the public through this crisis.”
