GMB Trade Union - Panasonic workers strike for third day in pay dispute

GMB members at Panasonic Cardiff have walked out for a third time in a dispute over pay.

Workers are also set to down tools on 6 December, with more dates expected to be announced soon.

Today [Monday 29 November 2021] workers picketed the electronics giant’s Cardiff plant after the company revealed plans to impose a pay freeze on them for the second year running.

GMB Union and Panasonic are scheduled to have talks with mediation service ACAS tomorrow [30 November 2021]

Nicola Savage, GMB Regional Organiser said:

“This is the third time our GMB members at Panasonic have walked out.

“Despite the cold weather they are in fine spirits. A soup kitchen and a burger van were on hand to keep them fed and watered while other unions and members of the public have shown their solidarity.

“Our members deserve a real pay rise and GMB will not rest until they get one.”
