Striking Brush workers continue to protest 'fire and rehire'

Brush engineering workers, on strike for six weeks so far against 'fire and rehire', had negotiations with management on 6 July, but they are refusing to budge. All workers were offered was training and other steps to 'improve morale', but the strikers are standing firm and say: "Stop fire and rehire, that will improve our morale!"

On 1 July, supporters and workers protested outside the old Brush factory in Loughborough. Called by their union Unite, it was supported by Unite Community members, Leicester and District Trades Council, Socialist Party members and Loughborough Labour Party.

This was the date that workers were meant to be sacked if they failed to sign new contracts, but that deadline has now been postponed.

Brush in the past was a key employer in the town. The protest included retired Brush workers and family members.

Send messages of support to the strike, search Unite Brush Electrical Machinery on Facebook.
