WORKERS AT the Pilkington Glass Knowsley Road site in St Helens are balloting for an overtime ban over threats to their jobs and conditions. Pilkington has several plants in St Helens. The Knowsley Road site (Triplex) currently makes windows for Land Rover.
With the present uncertainty over Rover and Land Rover, Pilks workers are concerned about the general fate of their industry and the particular manoeuvres of their bosses. Other Pilkington plants in the area have recently seen arguments about pay.
