Permanent, schermanent

> and employs over 7,000 permanent staff.

BiL worked for the Cardiff warehouse. None of the warehouse floor staff are kept on for more than 9 months at a time. They can re-apply after 3 months and are often taken on again. The only conclusion is that this is to avoid staff becoming permanent, thus saving on pension contributions etc.

The GMB should be looking into this as well.
