Justice for Brough
Last September the company announced a massive redundancy programme. This included the ending of manufacturing at the Brough site, where the Hawk aircraft is built, with the loss of 899 jobs.
BAE Brough workers will demonstrate at the company’s shareholder AGM at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in Westminster, London on Wednesday 2 May. Transport for this demo has been arranged by Unite North East, Yorkshire and Humberside Region and got the full support from the Regional Committee this week.
BAE is legally obliged to consult meaningfully with a view to reaching agreement over redundancies. Unite has done this in the past over major reductions and closure, but this time BAE has pulled the plug on talks.
Unite to save Brough on Wednesday 2 May and call for the consultation to be re-opened!
