Tesco to stop giving free plastic bags

13 Apr 2012

The Polish daily Gazeta Wyborcza quotes the trade union Sierpień ’80 as demanding the withdrawal of free bags as angry clients would take it out on the cash desk assistants when there were no bags available quoting ElĹźbieta Fornalczyk who heads the union at Tesco.

A few years ago the union organised the first strike in a Polish hypermarket chain and Tesco would not want a repeat. Particularly on an issue that will cut its own costs!

We were unable to establish whether Tesco will follow the same policy in other central European countries.
