"We deserve sick pay" UNISON members on sub-zero picket line (02/03/18)

Hull Strike action

(02/03/18) UNISON members at a waste transfer plant at Hull have taken strike action. A dozen lorry drivers employed by the FCC Group have braved sub-zero temperatures on the picket line outside the company's Wilmington facility off Stoneferry Road.

Adrian Kennett, the Branch Secretary of UNISON Hull City branch, said: "Our members have been campaigning for a long time for the company to put forward a better sick pay scheme but this has fallen on deaf ears.

"Currently managers get a company sick pay scheme from the first day of sickness and have seen their pay and benefits increase, yet frontline workers who deal with the city's waste get treated like second-class citizens."

The men were joined on the picket line by Emma Hardy, Labour MP for Kingston upon Hull West and Hessle who added "I am very disappointed to learn that the employer is not in any meaningful negotiations with the workers and I hope that the issues around sick pay can be quickly resolved."
