GMB members will not put up with ruthless attacks on their pay and conditions

Dozens of protestors are set to gather outside GKN Sankey in Telford today after workers voted to strike.

The demonstration takes place as follows:

TF1 6AA

Hundreds of workers - with a combined 4,000 years’ experience – voted to strike following a months-long onslaught on redundancy packages and pay.

The wheel manufacturing company - which made RAF Spitfires during World War 2 - has repeatedly refused to negotiate with their recognised trade union, GMB.

The strike will begin on Monday July 5, with more dates to be announced.

Stuart Harrison, Regional Organiser said:

“We are gathering today to let the company know GMB members will not put up with ruthless attacks on their pay and conditions.

“Many of these workers have given the best years of their lives to GKN Sankey – but are being rewarded with draconian cuts.

“It’s not too late for GKN Sankey to respect its workers, get round the table with GMB and prevent industrial action from going ahead.”
