LONDON – UK online fast fashion retailer, Boohoo, is under mounting pressure to engage with unions amid reports the retailer last week refused to meet with Union of Shop, Distributive and Allied Workers (USDAW) representatives. The chair of the UK’s Environmental Audit Committee, Mary Creagh MP, has now written to Boohoo joint chief executive, Carol Kane, claiming it is reneging on pledges made to the committee to engage with unions if that “was the wish of workers.” Says Creagh in her letter: “I am writing to you following media reports that the Union of Shop, Distributive and Allied Workers (Usdaw) continue to experience difficulties in establishing trade union recognition discussions with Boohoo. This is contrary to the evidence you gave to my Committee last November where you committed to union recognition ‘if the workers would like it.”
