April 2014 update: UK Crown workers step up support
"What they do today in their own back yard will be happening to us next” – UK based rep at Crown
Earlier this month Unite and GMB reps representing workers across the all of Crown’s UK sites were joined by their comrades from the Canadian plant to outline the challenge to the company’s plans.
Unite national officer Ian Tonks said “The meeting was a chance to hear from those directly affected by the actions of the company towards their fellow employees in Toronto. They were rightly outraged by what they heard. Crown UK had for many years been viewed as a decent employer by our reps, but over recent months that has changed.”
That’s why the reps have joined the call for international solidarity calling on Crown to end the unjustified treatment of Crown workers in Toronto.
They are joining the call for:
- An end to a decade of cuts forced on union workers
- An end to union busting
- Recognition of the union and a pay rise
