Despite the problems we can still WIN!

Hat-tip to Ian, who reports on UNITE’s success at securing recognition at Procter & Gamble.

“I’m on cloud nine. It’s given the company the right message and our job is to knuckle down and achieve the morale that’s necessary on the site through proper representation.”

Ken Chapman, UNITE activist

Despite the recession and despite the employer’s strong-arm tactics (as reported here by Tribune), UNITE’s members and activists have stood firm and secured a significant victory. The new agreement only covers 137 workers, but lets hope it has an impact across the whole of P & G’s 7,500-strong UK workforce, and we see subsequent recognition wins over the coming months and years.

Well done to all involved!
