Unite union members at the AGFA factory in Leeds struck for 48 hours against low pay on Sunday and Monday of last week.

Pickets were out in force during both days to show bosses that they’ve had enough of miserly pay rises.  

The print plate bosses’ offer of a 0.5 percent pay rise and a one-off payment was the final straw. Workers voted by 62 percent in favour of the strike—the factory’s first in 34 years.
