Possible Strike Action At VIP Polymers Huntingdon

Monday, April 8, 2013

GMB Members At VIP Polymers In Huntingdon Being Consulted On Possible Strike Action Over 10% Cut In Pay And Conditions.

Loyal workers who have carried the company through good times and bad do not deserve to be treated like this says GMB.

GMB members at VIP Polymers in St Peter’s Road, Huntingdon are being consulted about applying to the GMB Regional Committee for authority to undertake a formal ballot for industrial action. This is after they were told by the company that they are facing a 10% pay cut and a severe erosion in their terms and condition of employment and if they do not accept these cuts that they will be sacked.

VIP Polymers make rubber seals used in the waste and drainage industries.

Alan Costello GMB Organiser said, “Loyal GMB members who have already suffered redundancies and short time working are currently being consulted in relation to a potential ballot for industrial action over the issue. Quite frankly, given all that theses members have already suffered this is now a cut too far and they can literally take no more.

Loyal workers who have carried the company through good times and bad do not deserve to be treated like this.”
