Angry supermarket and Express staff have launched a petition after Tesco announced it was axing cleaning staff and expects shop staff to do the work.
Tesco is cutting thousands of cleaners from stores across the country and telling staff to do the cleaning instead.
Staff complain that hygiene is not something a huge supermarket should be sacrificing at any time but especially not now – and when Tesco’s sales are surging.
A Tesco Express staff member : “We have worked so hard during this pandemic, and I can tell you for a fact we will not be given the time needed to properly clean the shop. It is a complete slap in the face, and shows that Tesco only values profit; with no interest in staff or customer safety.”
Tesco Metro staff member said: “It’s awful that they are going to make a group redundant to then add to the workload and stress of other staff with no pay rise.”
That’s why a group of employees have launched a petition for all staff and customers to support in demanding that proper cleaners are kept in stores.
