Shopworkers' Protection Pledge

Over 400 shopworkers face violence and abuse every day, which is why I recently signed the Shopworker’s Protection Pledge. No one should have to work in fear, especially because they are challenging shoplifters, enforcing age restricted sales, or implemented coronavirus safety measures.

While retailers are spending £1.2 billion on crime prevention, this initiative, launched by the British Retail Consortium, is also asking Parliament to act and I support legislation to better protect retail workers from across the Congleton constituency.
