Sports Direct Protest

Please see this message from  Alex Flynn, Unite’s head of media and campaigns about yesterday’s day of action against zero hours contracts. It was high profile and was reported in most of the national media. For a local aspect, have a look at the Daily Mirror article.

Yesterday’s Sports Direct national day of action saw community action, shareholder action and social media combine to highlight ‘Victorian’ work practices at Sports Direct and spark a significant shareholder revolt at the company’s AGM.
With protests from Truro to Newcastle and a demo outside the AGM at Sports Direct HQ, the day received wide spread coverage in national and regional media.
The campaign continues … But in the meantime here’s a small selection of some of the media coverage.
