Petition text

Please review your contracts with Parcelforce - no one should have to pay because they're sick.

Why is this important?

Right now, drivers for the delivery company Parcelforce have to pay £250 every time they call in sick. They say this is to cover the costs of finding a replacement driver, but it’s more than a day’s pay.

Parcelforce make their money because of contracts with shops like John Lewis and Marks & Spencer. These shops care what customers think and are desperate to avoid bad publicity. If thousands of us put pressure on John Lewis and M&S to re-think the contracts, they could force Parcelforce to drop this dodgy policy.
