Dear Kate Price,
Re: Changes to sick pay entitlement and the attendance policy
I am writing on behalf of constituents who are employed by yourselves to ask that you suspend your proposed changes to sick pay entitlement and the attendance policy that I understand you are making from 1st April 2020.
I believe that these changes could cause significant difficulties for your staff and
reputational damage to the Wilko’s brand. This is an opportunity to show that you support your staff at a very difficult time. I would therefore be grateful if you agreed to the request to meet with GMB Union via ACAS for conciliation purposes as they have recently requested.
Thank you for your consideration of this request and I hope you will take this time to
review your position and suspend the changes pending those new negotiations. I look forward to hearing from you.
