Workers have declared victory at Street Crane after strikes won them a 3 percent pay rise without strings.
The Unite union members at the crane manufacturers in Chapel-en-le-Frith, Derbyshire, struck for eight days in October and November.
The management offered them a 3 percent rise with strings attached.
Workers unanimously rejected an offer that would have seen them receive a £100 lump sum to move to monthly pay. After that, the management backed down and offered them the 3 percent without strings immediately.
The union is now much stronger in the workplace, and the strike has caused a huge backlog of work.
It was great to see a group of workers flexing their muscles—and winning.
