Sports Direct protest
A PROTEST was held to object to a retailer's alleged mistreatment of its staff.
Activists teamed up with charity War on Want to hold demonstrations around the country on Saturday.
A crowd gathered outside Sports Direct at Solent Retail Park, Havant, from 11.30am until 1,30pm.
They were objecting to the company’s working conditions and use of zero-hour contracts.
Unison member Sheree Earnshaw said: ‘We are trying to get the government to get rid of zero-hour contracts.’
Councillor Beryl Francis, who represents Warren Park on Havant Borough Council, was also at the demo.
She said: ‘It is appalling that there are so many people who fear for their jobs due to zero-hour contracts. They are very badly treated. We are here to make people aware.’
