Covid: Morrisons to make thousands of staff permanent

Supermarket chain Morrisons is to make thousands of temporary staff permanent as a surge in demand for online deliveries due to the coronavirus pandemic continues. About 25,000 of those staff are still working for the supermarket, and more than 6,000 of those have already been given permanent jobs. Morrisons is expected to announce on Thursday that it plans to make thousands more of those temporary positions permanent in the coming weeks. As well as its own delivery service, Morrisons also partners Amazon and Deliveroo, and recently announced that customers could do a full Morrisons food shop on Amazon UK. Extra staff have also been needed in Morrisons supermarkets to keep them running properly, and to make sure the supermarkets conform to coronavirus safety guidelines. In June delivery firm DPD and B&Q owner Kingfisher said they would be hiring thousands more staff.
