The T&G union has confirmed that around 1,000 workers at Grampian foods will be on strike tomorrow around the country.
The strike will be about half the number of workers who originally voted to strike and a week late, as reported by libcom two weeks ago, this is due to the T&G entering negotiations at several sites across the UK. However, strike action is expected from 6.00am tomorrow at Cambuslang near Glasgow, Coupar Angus in Perthshire and Fairview near Edinburgh; Stoke Ferry in Norfolk, and Wivelscombe in Somerset; Llangefni and Anglesey in North Wales.
T&G Scotland regional industrial organizer Scott Foley said: "It was clear to us that while local management in Scotland claimed to be free to negotiate with us, in reality their hands were tied by their company's policy across the UK, and we were unable to arrive at a settlement. So the talks have broken down, and our members are taking strike action."
