Stop taking the biscuit out of Britain's workers

End Fire and Rehire at Weetabix

Weetabix is taking the biscuit out of British workers

Around 80 engineers employed by Weetabix, the UK’s favourite breakfast cereal, based at factories in Kettering and Corby, face changes to their shift and working patterns that would result in some losing as much as £5,000 from their annual earnings.

Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said: “Weetabix believes it can steamroll a loyal and hardworking staff into accepting worse wages, pensions and conditions by threatening them with the sack. Weetabix’s management must be learning this kind of ‘take it or leave it’ industrial relations from their American owners. Unite won’t accept that.”

It’s time to end Fire & Rehire at Weetabix

Unite members at Weetabix will not accept being fired and rehired. Weetabix must reverse its plans and treat workers with respect.

Watch Unite general secretary Sharon Graham backing workers at Weetabix: "It's wrong for companies to try and sack workers and then re-hire them on worse wages and conditions. This is exactly what is happening at Weetabix. Unite won’t accept that, we will use every resource available to defend our members."
