Asda today announced changes to people working nights and the closure of in-store pharmacies.
This could result in about 300 job losses.
The Guardian reported that Asda plans to move overnight restocking shifts at 184 supermarkets to the daytime, putting 211 night shift manager roles at risk.
It said the changes will also affect 4,137 night workers who are paid by the hour, as their shifts will be moved to daytime and they will lose their night shift pay premium of at least £2.52 per hour.
It also announced a 25% cut to the opening hours of 23 in-store Post Office shops, and will shut seven in-store pharmacies, which employ 14 pharmacists and 48 other workers.
