Trelleborg Workers Show Management Who’s Boss

With the workers at the Beaumont Ley’s Trelleborg factory having just undertaken a two-day strike, it appears that their management are determined to ignore their very reasonable demands for fair pay.

Mark Potter, the local Unite the Union rep based at the factory finds it strange that the management refuse to make their workers a reasonable offer, especially given that Trelleborg’s “operating profits for 2013 broke all their own record’s, with 2014 looking like it will be very similar.”

Such bullying from their management is however only fuelling the workers “resolve to stick together”. As Mark explained: “we had members on the first day of picketing who had just finished a full eight hour night-shift who then stood on a picket line for twelve hours solid.”
