Ann Coffey supports USDAW’s ‘Respect for Shopworkers Week’

Ann visited the Co-op store, on Castle Street in Edgeley to show her support for USDAW’s ‘Respect for Shopworkers Week’.

Products can be replaced and stores repaired, but violent crime in shops often has a shocking and lasting impact on shop workers.

During the visit, Ann spoke to the staff and Tony Clare from USDAW and was pleased to hear about the Co-op’s actions to make the shop a safer environment including all staff having headphones so that they can pass information more quickly and more visible staff on the shop floor.
