Strike at Ifor Williams Trailers

Issue No. 1864

'What do we want? Shift pay! When do we want it? Now!' These chants echoed round a small North Wales town last Sunday as workers from Ifor Williams Trailers continued their battle for night shift pay and other improvements.

The next day they held their second 24-hour strike. Ifor Williams Trailers employs 400 in Corwen, Cynwyd and Bala. On Sunday around 150 workers and their supporters met in Cynwyd and marched to Corwen.

They have won strong support from local MPs, Welsh Assembly members and local people. The strikers are GMB union members.
