Morrisons to give workers Boxing Day off

Morrisons will close its almost 500 shops on Boxing Day giving more than 110,000 staff the day off. The supermarket, the UK's fourth-largest, said it wanted to reward staff for working hard in the pandemic. Last year, some supermarkets gave staff Boxing Day off as a thank you for their hard work keeping essential services running during the pandemic. Joanne McGuiness, national officer at shop workers' union Usdaw, said that she welcomed Morrisons "Doing the right thing by their staff with the closure of supermarkets on Boxing Day"."Key workers have done so much this year and we are asking retailers to give their staff the longest possible break over the festive season to provide them with a well-deserved breather. We don't think this is too much to ask for," she added. Morrisons started life as a market stall in Bradford in 1899, but it was not until 1961 that the first supermarket store opened under the name.
