And this is just the start all the other trades will go the same way.
The employers have allready been paid these increases anyway when they priced the jobs but havent passed the money onto the workers and just pocketed the money. We cant afford to strike but we cant just lye there and take it.Forget about the increase thats just bad publicity its the cuts and these stupid rules we dont want.the bosses are rich enough,they have been riping us off long enough.
Im a Plant fitter and we had to take a 10% cut on wages,no more tea/lunch money, trackers in the vans, ban on overtime, we had short time for 4 months, going back on it soon.
Get over it sparks everyone is in the same boat.
Our company still has loads of directors and managers and i haven't seen them take a pay cut.took many chefs i say.and we have had plenty of redundances.
