PRESS AND paintline section members at Raven Manufacturing on the Altham Industrial Estate near Burnley have halted their strikes. This follows a letter from management threatening to sack them. The bosses' letter said they could do this under the law which allows sacking after eight weeks of a strike.
The strikers, members of the AEEU-Amicus union, are gutted that they couldn't get anything out of their extremely greedy and union-busting management. Pay negotiations for next year start in January and workers hope to improve then on the 1.5 percent that they've been forced to accept for this year.
