Wage row erupts

Topshop workers at its online distribution depot are set to strike on Cyber Monday, one of the busiest days of the year.

More than half of the 200 workers at the depot in Shirley, West Midlands, are set to walk out on Monday.

According to the GMB union, most workers are paid £7.20 an hour and should be paid £8.45.

David Warwick, an organiser for GMB, Warwick said: “It’s a disgrace that Sir Philip Green, who holds the purse strings on this DHL contract and has enriched himself on the backs of these loyal workers, is refusing to put a sensible offer on the table.

“I sincerely hope he takes some time from sailing his luxury yacht to reconsider his position and pay his workers enough money for a decent standard of living.”
