Delivery drivers sacked by Howdens joinery and kitchens in Widnes protested in London on Thursday of last week in their fight to get their jobs back.

Their depot was closed on Tuesday of last week, in what the workers see as an attack on their union, Unite.

“It’s absolutely disgraceful,” worker Kenny Rowe told Socialist Worker.

“We’ve been protesting every day for three weeks at Howdens outlets and depots. We want them to get back around the table and talk.”
