GMB Members In Worksop Firm To Strike Again On Tuesday 21st April In Pay Dispute
Members want a fair days pay for a fair days work as many have to rely on benefits to top up their pay which is outrageous and unacceptable says GMB.
Over 30 GMB members employed by US owned Cinch Connectivity Solutions in Worksop in Nottinghamshire will take a second day of strike action on Tuesday 21st April from 7 am until 4 pm in an attempt to secure an improved pay offer in negotiations in a dispute over pay. This will be followed by an ongoing overtime ban from Wednesday 22nd April.
These staff took a first day of strike action on Tuesday 14th April when they formed a picket line outside the business on Shireoaks Road.
Sue Wood, GMB Regional Organiser, said “The dispute is over pay. Our members are lower paid skilled workers manufacturing connectors for the aerospace industry. The majority of their work is for the MOD.
The members are fighting for a living wage. They want a fair days pay for a fair days work. Currently many of our members have to rely on benefits to top up their pay which is outrageous and unacceptable.
Members have support from the local MP John Mann who stood on the picket line with them on April 14th and is highlighting our campaign on his website. The employer is currently refusing to enter into further negotiations.”
