GREAT TURNOUT AT DEMONSTRATION
NOW IT’S TIME TO STEP UP OUR FIGHT!
Congratulations to everyone on a fantastic turnout last Thursday; we got great coverage and really made management sit up and listen but now we need to step up the fight. We’ve got a number of other actions planned and your stewards will be consulting you over the next few days, but these could include:
• Presentation of the petition – we are finalising details of how and when this will happen but watch this space! – and the majority of the site has signed so if you haven’t done so yet, make sure you sign very soon, you have nothing to fear with all our members standing shoulder to shoulder together
• Conducting a consultative ballot for industrial action – this is NOT an industrial action ballot but is to see whether members would be willing to ballot for action if management continue to treat us so disgracefully, and to send a very strong message to Greencore that their workers must not be forced to pay for their mistakes
Let your stewards know your views (and suggestions for other actions!); Unite is lay member led and you make all decisions!
DON’T LISTEN TO MANAGEMENT LIES
Management have put out statements to the press and the workforce that contain a number of ‘facts’ that aresimply not true. It may be helpful to remind you of what has actually happened over recent months during the consultation period so we have circulated a separate notice with full details.
SEE YOUR STEWARD BEFORE SIGNING ANYTHING!
Management are still putting members under pressure to sign the new contracts before 27th July. Do not sign your contract until you have spoken to your shop steward; we have a letter for you to give to the company stating that you are signing the new contract under duress. If you have already signed a contract and feel that you have signed it under the duress, we have another letter for you to give to the company – both letters have been checked by Unite solicitors.
JOIN THE FIGHT BACK – LET’S MAKE HULL 100% UNITE
Since we began our fightback our membership has grown to over 500. If you’re still not a member, go to the Union office for a form – the more members we have, the better we can fight back!
