More than 1000 MWU members who work for AFFCO Talleys have been trying to get a fair agreement for more than a year now.
No-one wants to see a repeat of three years ago, when these workers were locked out for 84 days by this company.
But time’s running out! From 6th March the new employment laws will make it easier for employers to walk away from negotiations, and let them pay new workers less, even where there is a union on the job.
The old AFFCO Talley’s agreement expired back in December 2013. There’s been 9 days of meetings with the company and plant discussions, but there’s still no agreement.
AFFCO Talley workers need their agreement settled soon. Your show of solidarity right now will help keep their strength in the bargaining coming up in February.
Tell Talleys workers you support them and at the same time, let the company know you’re watching.
