MMP workers fighting for justice

Issue No. 2303

Workers sacked by Mayr Melnhof Packaging (MMP) in Bootle, Merseyside, are protesting at the firm’s clients and partners as part of their campaign for justice. They are members of the Unite union.

MMP bosses locked out over 140 workers in February when they went on strike over redundancies.

They have since closed the Bootle site.
