The T&G section of the UK union Unite has launched a national campaign to pressure major retailers to push their suppliers to agree to minimum standards for all meat workers. The campaign launch targeted Marks & Spencer, which has invested massively in promoting their allegedly ethical, socially responsible standards for suppliers, with actions at M&S shops across the UK.

The T&G is demanding equal treatment for the agency and temporary workers which make up a growing percentage of the workforce in the sector, along with clear labeling.

The union has also set up an online petition which can be accessed and signed here.
