MMP packaging: workers still locked out

149 workers at Mayr-Melnhof Packaging (MMP) in Bootle, Merseyside have been locked out of their workplace in a dispute with management over planned redundancies.

Workers have picketed the main-gates, initially by day, but since March have progressed to 24-hour pickets on a shift system that mirrors their attendance on any normal working day or night.

Workers knew that some redundancies would be made but these were going to be on a voluntary basis.

Now management have come back with an even worse offer and proposals and a lock-out to add to the uncertainty.

Workers at MMP in Deeside are currently balloting whether to join the dispute.
