BADGE OF MERIT AWARD FOR UNITE WALES 'JUSTICE FOR BLUE ARROW WORKERS CAMPAIGN VICTORY
Unite Blue Arrow representative, Richard Alli has been awarded a Unite Wales badge of merit in recognition of the 'Justice for Blue Arrow Workers' campaign victory.
Following the presentation of the award at the regional committee meeting on 24 April, Unite Wales secretary Andy Richards said of Richard Alli's work:
"The victory you have achieved in this campaign is not only totally justified for your members, who perform the same work as core-workers at the Airbus site, many of whom are family members, but sends out a strong message.
To employers such as Airbus the message is ‘Unite Wales will not tolerate injustice in any form.'
To other agency workers it is ‘Unite is a union which solidly supports
of its members.'
The campaign was an excellent victory for both Unite and our members and the award recognises the courage, honesty and resilience which you have shown in your leadership of your members during the course of this campaign."
The award was unanimously agreed by the regional committee and was presented by Unite the union assistant general secretary, Tony Burke (pictured above with Richard Alli).
