Holland & Barrett Exit Workfare

"At Holland & Barrett, we take our responsibilities as a retailer and employer very seriously, and any possible compromise to the safety of our staff and customers from opponents of our work experience scheme is treated with great importance.
This factor, together with the planned introduction of a new full time, salaried apprentice scheme, means that the 60 people currently undertaking the work experience scheme will be the last to complete the eight week placement. After this time Holland & Barrett will not participate further in that scheme."

"Compromise to the safety of our staff"? A Parthian shot to cover the fact that H&B were using unpaid workers.

Well done to everyone who applied pressure to these scoundrels. Direct action works!
