Workers at at Anglian Windows in Norwich struck and marched on Tuesday of this week.
The GMB union members’ dispute centres around a change in the demand for wood effect windows as opposed to the ordinary white windows.
The union members at Anglian work on a piece rate system. This means that individual rates are paid for individual components in the making of double glazed window units.
These rates are amalgamated to come up with an overall hourly rate. The workers want the rate for making wood effect windows to be increased in line with the company’s own work study report.
This will increase the average weekly pay for the majority of the workforce. Workers struck for two days in May over this issue.
