All hourly paid workers at Enterprise Way, Lealand Way, Tenens Way, Benner Road, Holland Place, Cramlington, Hereford and Norfolk had the opportunity to take part in a statutory ballot to decide whether they wanted their union recognised at Coveris Flexibles UK Ltd (formerly Paragon Labels).
The result of the ballot was an overwhelming majority of workers voting in favour of Unite being recognised for the purposes of collective bargaining across all of the eight Coveris Flexibles UK Sites.
Mark Walker, regional officer for Coveris Norfolk said, “This is a fantastic achievement for Unite to secure such a high return in favour of union recognition. By voting “YES” workers across the Coveris Flexibles UK Group have sent a clear message to the company that they want union recognition at their workplace”.
This campaign has been a co-ordinated effort involving regional officers, Unite activists and union members across all of the eight Coveris Flexibles UK sites. Work will continue to organise and build union structures within each recognised workplace.
