Wyndeham Impact, Basingstoke

Workers at the Impact printers in Basingstoke, members of Unite, have been forced to strike after a long list of attacks by management. The long-established magazine printing company has been in trouble since the collapse of the Icelandic Landsbanki and the management have been trying to make the workers bear the brunt of this. There have been wage cuts, sick pay cuts, holiday cuts and compulsory redundancies.


Unison expulsion

Socialist Party member Onay Kasab has been informed by the Unison leadership that his appeal against expulsion from the union has failed.

He was accused of 'bringing the union into disrepute' by allegedly encouraging Greenwich Unison members to leave and join Unite. Unison were unable to provide any evidence of this.

Unison members have left the union, sickened by the way the branch has been run by the regional officials.

Since the branch has been taken over by the full time officials no effective campaign against cuts in jobs and services has been mounted and there have been no democratic elections of branch officials.

A fuller report will be in next week's Socialist.


Unilever pension strike

Members of Unite, GMB and Usdaw are balloting for strike action against Unilever's plans to close its final salary pension scheme to existing members. A consultative ballot showed only 22 out of 1,459 workers responding being prepared to accept the company's plans. 5,000 of the 7,000 workforce are involved.
