GMB union has announced strike dates for workers at Panasonic’s Pontprennau plant.

Staff overwhelmingly voted for strike action after the company withdrew its 1% offer.

The offer would have seen a pay freeze for workers for the second year running.

Staff will strike next Monday (15th November 2021) and Monday 22nd November.

Nicola Savage, GMB regional organiser said:   

“We’ve told Panasonic that we’re ready to come back to the table at any point, and they’ve responded by trying to tie us up in legal loopholes.   

“Let’s be clear, for our members this issue will not go away, so we’re not going away.   

“Dark autumnal mornings are a lot easier for our members to brave than the impact of a further pay freeze.   

“Enough is enough.”
