Prisme factory occupation enters its fifth week

Issue No. 2145

Workers at the Prisme packaging plant in Dundee are entering the fifth week of their factory occupation.

The company sacked the 12 workers without any holiday pay, pay in lieu of notice or wages outstanding.

The occupation aims to put pressure on the company and the Labour government to win the money that they are owed.

Plans to run the plant as a workers' cooperative are now coming together. A crucial meeting to secure funding was due to take place later this week.

Donations should be made out to TUC Lobby Fund and sent to Prisme Workers Solidarity, c/o Mike Arnott, Dundee TUC, 141 Yarrow Terrace, Menzieshill, Dundee DD2 4DY.
