RF Brookes pie workers fight bosses' carve-up

Issue No. 2309

Workers at the RF Brookes pie factory in South Wigston, Leicester were set to strike again from this Thursday.

They are fighting plans to cut hundreds of jobs and slash redundancy pay.

The BFAWU bakers’ union members plan to be out until next Tuesday. They struck for two days last week and the week before.

Anthony, one of the strikers, said, “With these bosses it’s like a poker game. They make promises to some workers in an attempt to divide them from the others, but we know they can’t keep them.”
