Topshop staff plan Cyber Monday strike
Workers who manage online sales for Arcadia at the depot in Shirley, which is operated by Spectrum, a division of logistics company DHL, plan to walk out on Monday.
Most workers at the depot are paid the minimum wage of £7.20 an hour, while the GMB Union are asking for £8,45.
The threat comes just days before Arcadia is expected to announce its full-year results. What’s more, CEO Philip Green is already under increasing pressure from British parliamentarians. The CEO needs to settle a £571 million pension deficit at BHS, which was sold this year, as well as faces calls for assets to be seized including his £100 million yacht.
Last year, Arcadia saw a 5 percent increase in profits, made possible by the expansion of its Topshop chain and the sale of BHS. Sales for the most part have remained stable at £2,07 billion.
The parent company owns Topshop, Topman, Dorothy Perkins, Wallis, Miss Selfridge, Evans and Burton.
