Stall handlers

Issue No. 1906

STALL HANDLERS in the TGWU union have forced their RaceTech bosses to back down over cuts in their allowances and expenses. The stall handlers, who work on race courses, struck two weeks ago, hitting several race meetings including Royal Ascot.

They have now won a pay rise of 2.5 percent. The TGWU's national secretary Chris Kaufman said, 'The union's success is a tribute to the solidarity shown throughout the dispute by the stall handlers.'
