You told us why the Equal Pay Now campaign is so important

Working in a supermarket or high street shop is tougher now than ever. Shop workers deserve to feel valued and to be treated fairly.

There’s strength in numbers

It’s good what you’re doing


"It's good what you’re doing. From my experience in working in my branch the majority of women are doing unappreciated, heavy work which should be paid equally to those in the distribution centres."

Ms J B, Morrisons Employee

EVERYONE SHOULD BE EQUALLY PAID


"I have worked for the company for over 25 years and I feel that everyone should be equal paid."

Ms. M, Sainsbury’s employee

Achieving it for all


    "Equal pay is something we are entitled to and we should be fighting and striving towards achieving it for all."

Mr K, Asda Employee since 2006

For fairness

WE ARE WORTH MORE


"The Co-op couldn’t survive without staff like us. We make the Co-op, we are worth more, and they should pay us more."

Current Co-op store worker

IT’S BETTER TO DO THIS AS A GROUP


"I feel it's better to do this as a group, to show that there are a lot of people willing to stand up and be supportive to each other."

Ms. C I, Tesco employee

I CARE ABOUT HOW WE ARE ALL BEING TREATED


"I'm pretty much the person who started the whole thing on my department and have told others who have told others because I care about how we are all being treated."

Ms D H, Tesco employee

To feel appreciated

APPRECIATE WHAT YOU ARE DOING


"Me and my colleagues really appreciate what you are doing, especially at this current time as so many people at Asda are facing very difficult circumstances."

Ms. L A, ASDA employee

A must for unappreciated staff members


"Having heard about this from a few colleagues I feel it's a must for unappreciated staff members."

Mrs C I, Tesco Employee for over 10 years

EQUAL PAY WILL HELP RESTORE MY CONFIDENCE AND SELF-RESPECT


"Equal pay will help to restore my confidence and self-respect because finally the company I have worked hard for will now recognise that my role as a sales consultant is as valuable as a warehouse operative."

Mrs. C, Next Employee
