HP Sauce workers protest

Issue No. 2003

Workers from the threatened HP sauce factory in Birmingham are set to protest in the city against 125 proposed job cuts this Saturday.

Workers from the T&G union have already protested at the Houses of Parliament and Heinz’s headquarters in Harrow.

“Our people will do all they can to take the message to Heinz and the wider consumer world that they are bring treated unfairly,” said T&G food industry organiser John Jordan.

“The company’s plans to move jobs to Holland are a breach of the commitments they gave to us when they bought the company last year.”
