Harrods threatens to become first major employer to use agency staff as strikebreakers

The staffing agency industry’s trade body has hit out at Harrods after the luxury department store threatened to take advantage of new laws allowing it to break strikes using temporary workers.

Harrods told its staff it is willing to use temporary workers to keep its shop running after employees at the Knightsbridge shop threatened to strike over pay negotiations.

The shop said it will use new laws, introduced last month, that let businesses bring in temporary staff to fill in for striking workers.
