GMB members working at Cinch in Worksop unanimously voted in favour of a series of one day strikes in protest over their pay claim for the living wage (currently £7.85). Today was their first day of action.
The members were joined on the picket line by GMB officer Sue Wood and John Mann MP who posted the following message of support on his website.
“This morning I joined the GMB picket line at Cinch Connectivity. Workers are asking to be paid the living wage for the skilled jobs that they do. I am backing them in their campaign and calling for everyone who works for a company that is given government contracts to be paid the living wage. Please share this post and support their campaign.”
