Greencore strike: A free cup of tea isn’t enough!

‘Rebel with a cause’ Rotherham

Following many years of under-inflation pay rises, effectively pay cuts, and worsening terms and conditions, Unite members at Greencore Manton Woods site in Worksop have had enough. The latest pay offer is again lower than inflation.

Greencore is a major supplier of sandwiches and ready meals to big supermarkets. Many of the 500 workers earn as little as £10.53 an hour.

Year after year the workforce suffers pay cuts as the company profits soar. Management believes giving the workforce a free cup of coffee or tea suffices to make up for continued pay cuts!

Unite members have sent a clear message to Greencore management as they plan to take strike action from 11 September to 9 October, starting at 5.30am. This will be the first strike action taken by union members at Manton Woods in its history. Please support it!
