Heinz strikers take fourth day of action

Submitted by Matthew on 19 January, 2011 - 12:58

Workers at a Heinz plant in Wigan struck again in January for a fourth time in a long-running pay dispute with their bosses.

Workers had decisively rejected a pay deal which would have meant a 3.5% increase in 2011 and a 3.4% increase in 2012. A further strike was planned for Wednesday January 19, but following the latest strike management had offered a 3.9% increase in both years. Workers were balloting on the new offer as Solidarity went to press.
