Asos denies its warehouse is a ‘cradle of disease’ for workers | ITV News

People turned up for the afternoon shift at the Asos warehouse in Grimethorpe, Barnsley, as normal on Monday afternoon but some are anxious the company is not adequately protecting them during the Coronavirus outbreak.

The GMB Union says that a survey it carried out of almost 470 workers over the weekend showed that 98% feel unsafe, even after new safety measures at the site were introduced.

One respondent said: “Hundreds of people are coming to work by bus.

“[There’s] No safe distance between them.”
