Kiln burners at Hanson Brick near Peterborough have entered their third week of indefinite strike.

The 13 workers are members of the Unite and GMB unions. 

They have called six weeks of action—the maximum allowed by law without needing a fresh ballot.

Send messages of support to Stan Dow at or to 41 Inhams Road, Whittlesey, Peterborough PE7 1TT. Cheques, made payable to ‘Unite the union 8/10/738 Branch’ should also be sent to this address.
