Unilever strike Action

The branch has sent the following message of solidarity for this strike, but feel free to send your own:

On behalf of PCS DWP Sheffield branch I wish you well in your fight and you have our full support in your dispute. The battle for pensions is as vital in the private sector as in the public sector, where we continue our struggle, and we remember that it is the unions that fought and won for better pension rights. It is vital that struggles like yours are won in order to set a precedent for the private sector, and so we offer you our full solidarity and support.

Unite members at Unilever will be on 24 hour strike again on Friday 20 January 2012.  Details of the Y&H site affected is below:

Coal Road
LS14 2AR

The strike will start at 18.00 hours on Friday 20 January 2012, concluding at 17.59 hours on Saturday 21 January 2012.

The significance of this action by Unite members is that it is the private sector fighting to retain pensions and it is an absolutely crucial aspect of the fair pensions for all campaign.

Please show solidarity by sending messages of support and attending picket lines (if possible).

Messages of support can be sent to Bill Hodgson at william.hodgson@unilever.com and Ian Swift ian.swift@unilever.com

Members employed in PTOps across the UK took action on 12 December in protest against HMRC’s decision to trial privatisation in the telephone contact centre.

The current situation is HMRC have signed contracts with two suppliers, Sitel and Teleperformance.

Both companies will be recruiting locally in the coming weeks and we expect representatives from these companies to be on site at Lillyhall and Bathgate in the lead up to trials starting in February

We are therefore asking all members in PTOps (contact centres, customer operations and in enquiry centres) to take further strike action on 16 January and again on 31 January. Information on this is here.
