Staff at Aldi Hemel Hempstead ‘miserable’ after store heating breaks for a week
A worker at the Maylands Avenue store, who wished to remain anonymous, told The Gazette: “Other than getting ill, I am miserable, we all are. It is hard work, to begin with, especially around Christmas time. These conditions just add a whole other layer of stress.”
An Aldi spokesperson said the repair delay was due to a spike in demand for heating engineers.
They explained: “Although measures were taken to help colleagues and customers at the time, we have apologised to all those who were affected.”
The member of staff said: “We are human beings, not cattle as some seem to think. During the pandemic, we've learned that we are essential. Seems to me that we should be treated with more respect.”
