That this House is disappointed at the treatment of Tesco distribution centre workers in Harlow; notes that Tesco?s UK and Ireland Distribution Director Steve Strachota tweeted that - five depots closing and three new ones ready to go. Awesome teamwork, courageous leadership, a bit of luck. #worldclass - which was seen by many Harlow Tesco workers and their families; further notes that this decision lost 800 workers in Harlow their jobs, many of whom have given over 20 years of loyal service to Tesco; and therefore urges Tesco to condemn this tweet and recognise the upset that this has caused to Harlow workers.

This motion has been signed by a total of 10 MPs.
