That article asks : So, for example, could a worker on a supermarket checkout refuse to put a meat product through the till?
Are we really going to have different checkouts because some teenager decides she doesn't want to eat veal?
A better question - could an employer stipulate that handling meat products is a mandatory requirement for hiring to a checkout position. Or perhaps they would state it as handling all products sold by the store.

WRT to Tesco questions, I sometimes buy beers for the train home from a shop with a lass in a hijab. I’m sure she’s ethically opposed to booze, but she seems happy enough to flog them to me.

Nippy enough in pure electric for about half an hour and then just another petrol car and handed over.
