Unions in talks with Unilever

Issue No. 2289

Consumer goods giant Unilever has agreed to negotiate with unions over attacks on its workers’ pensions. It had previously refused talks through the Acas conciliation service unless unions accepted that the final salary pensions scheme would be scrapped.

Workers in the Unite, GMB and Usdaw unions struck twice against the attacks, in December and again in January.

Unilever is one of the most profitable corporations in Britain. Workers should not accept any attempt to rob them of their pension scheme.
