Sainsbury’s workers at a distribution centre are set to walk out for the second time later this month over a dispute regarding attendance.

Workers at the retailer’s Waltham Point distribution centre will take part in a second round of 24-hour strike action on July 25, according to a statement from trade union Usdaw.

Usdaw divisional officer Nigel Scully said the union was “frustrated and disappointed” that Sainsbury’s would not negotiate over the attendance scheme for employees on the site.
