Huw recently attended USDAW’s ‘Freedom from Fear Campaign’ in Cardiff and pledged his support to help protect our shop workers.
More than 300 shop workers are abused or assaulted every day in the workplace. The campaign seeks to highlight the abuse that workers suffer whilst doing their jobs and asks for people to ‘Keep Your Cool’, particularly during the Christmas period.
Huw whilst encouraging people to respect our workforce said, “Life on the front line of retail can be challenging and our shop workers are in constant threat of violence and abuse every day in their working life. This is simply not acceptable. The Christmas period brings a host of added challenges and can be quite stressful for both shop workers and shoppers. Please ‘keep your cool’ and spare a thought for our shop workers as abuse is not part of their job”.
