MONIER REDLAND WAGE FREEZE ‘A SLAP IN THE FACE’ FOR WORKERS, SAYS GMB
Union describes profitable company’s announcement as “appalling”
GMB, the union for building materials workers, has demanded that leading roofing supplier Monier Redland get round the table to improve a pay offer after it was revealed that the comapny would impose a wage freeze for workers in 2017.
The union said the decision was unjustified and amounted to a slap in the face for its workers in the context of rising prices.
This company according to its own accounts last year made an operating profit of £8,789,000 a 57% increase on the previous year.
Steve Kemp, GMB National Officer said:
“To say to our members who work long hours and have contributed to the company’s success, that they are to be rewarded with a pay freeze against the backdrop of inflation rising is appalling.
“GMB calls on the company to stop hiding behind the excuses of Brexit and the Chancellor’s statement on Wednesday, and get round the table and reward its workers with a just and fair wage increase.”
