Nathaniel Barber commented on the ongoing supermarket equal pay claims
“While many of Sainsbury’s in-store workers are struggling to make ends meet, the CEO, Simon Roberts, received a shocking £3.8 million pay deal last year.
For years, these frontline workers – and similar employees at other supermarket chains – have been fighting for the basic right of equal pay for equal work in comparison with their peers working in Distribution Centres.
Yet, supermarkets remained unmoved by their employees’ plight, instead, forcing them to turn to the justice system and bring claims which have been bogged down in years of prevaricating by the supermarket Defendants.”
