Robert Halfon Stands Up For Harlow Workers in Asda/Sainsbury’s Merger

After speaking in a debate in the House of Commons on the Sainsbury’s and Asda merger, Harlow MP Robert Halfon has written to the Chief Executives of Asda and Sainsbury’s, as well as the Chairman of the CMA, who are in charge of overseeing the merger and making sure there is fair competition.

Commenting, Robert Halfon said: “Sainsbury’s and Asda provide hundreds of jobs in Harlow, not just in store but it logistics and deliveries too. I have contacted their Chief Executives to ask for guarantees that hard working Harlow resident’s jobs will be protected long into the future.”

It's May 1st, not April 1st. If the Tory Party are oh so concerned about the workers how come that at every opportunity for decades and decades they've tried to curtail trade union activity and workers' rights? And how about the pit villages they destroyed with their ideological holy war in the 1980s leaving them black holes of unemployment, drug and alcohol abuse? If this political thing doesn't work out for Bob (and it isn't) a job as a comedy writer surely awaits.

Obviously, jfq wasn't around in the days when the UNIONS run by communists and Marxists, were forever coming out on strike. Forcing the British motor industry to it's knees. To-day we have the rail unions striking virtually every week,a few hundred people stopping thousands from getting to work. The same will happen again if they ever get into power. Ironic that a TORY, Robert Halfon, is warning these two companies that employees of the companies will not suffer redundancies, if they merge. R H is really a man to be reckoned with, and I think he's making it known that there will be consequences and cutting of jobs will not be tolerated.

Really, and what will Bob do if they say otherwise? Spend another £25k at East India House to take his mind off it? If working conditions were as they are for much of continental Europe and this country's work relations not seen as among the worst in the continent, then there would be no need for strikes. Typical Conservative attitude, all our way or nothing at all, the viewpoint of a group that feel they're entitled to everything and the general public can go to hell if they don't like it. The Tories are historically not interested in compromise, even if it will improve the lives of the people. Which is why their policies on the NHS, Universal Discredit, the disabled, the Windrush generation etc etc etc, over the last few years have been unmitigated disasters.

jfq. Have you ever worked in a trade or industry that is governed by trade union activists ? I bet not. Yet again, spewing out the same old tripe thinking that he/ she's is right. Sad really, that he wants to take us back to the dark days. That's the REDS for you.
