Ballot in support of sacked 2 Sisters workers

Issue No. 2182

Around 380 workers at the 2 Sisters food processing plant in Smethwick, West Midlands, are balloting for strikes over the sacking of 59 employees at the factory.

The 59 workers were sacked in July after walking out against racism. They took the unofficial action after a Unite union rep who reported racial abuse was disciplined.

The sacked workers have led a campaign with protests taking place outside supermarkets that are supplied by 2 Sisters.
