  • Gate Gourmet strike ends

    Finally the saga is ending. Gate Gourmet workers have voted to end their action and accept a deal. Though I’m not happy that so many people still had to leave. Around 144 workers will be forced to take compulsory redundancy and hundreds more will take voluntary redundancy. BBC report.

    The GG management has gotten away without having to answer to why it planned to provoke workers into striking. It it also galling that while the unions and most Labour delegates gave them full support, the Sikh ‘leadership’ was strangely quiet. Without the support strike action by BA workers, this whole episode would probably not even have been noticed.
