Argos workers still solid after 3 week strike

Argos strikers show their support for McDonald’s strikers

Argos workers, members of Unite the Union, finished the 3 week period of strikes they’ve been engaging in over issues around relocation and redundancies today.

In Castleford, this is a key issue as many of the workers have been long- term employees accruing a significant redundancy package if they were made redundant.  Their fear is that transferring their work to another site out of reasonable commuting distance would rob them of that security. 

Strikers were clear that of Argos won’t budge then there more than prepared to take further action. 

The strikers want to thank those who have sent support for them and concluded their picket line by taking a solidarity photo in support of the McDonald’s workers who are on strike for the first time today over working conditions, zero hour contracts and low pay.
