The Lancashire region of GMB Congress will hold a protest outside the Ince, Wigan Asda depot this morning.

The protest is in support of Ince shop steward Gary Belshaw who was suspended after workers staged a short unofficial walk-out last week to discuss a management demand that they increase their picking rate from 1,100 boxes to 1,400 in an eight-hour shift.

The protest coincides with Belshaw’s disciplinary hearing which is due today.
