Socialist Worker

Cummins

Issue No. 1869

WORKERS IN the Amicus union at the Cummins factory in Ramsgate voted unanimously on two occasions last week to reject management's offers for pay and conditions. Amicus-MSF rep at the factory Marian Armstrong told Socialist Worker, 'It is a pretty powerful statement. The feeling is the same on the shop floor and among staff. No one trusts the management. People are on poor money and have lost overtime. Management wants workers to have banked hours so that they work more hours some weeks, less the other. That means less overtime. I have never seen people so unanimous.'
