Unite members in Bootle “Locked Out”

149 UNITE members employed by Austrian multi-national packaging company, Mayr-Melnhof Packaging (MMP) in Bootle, Merseyside have been locked out by the company since 18 February.
Members took lawful industrial action to support a previous agreement reached with MMP and to stop the selection by the company of those to be made redundant. MMP locked the gates of the Bootle site. UNITE members have been picketing the site since and are campaigning to get the company to end the lockout and enter proper negotiations.
For more information, see the UNITE newsflash. This also gives information about where you can send messages of protest, messages of support, or financial contributions for the locked-out workers. Your UNITE Fujitsu Combine Committee has already sent a small contribution from our fund, and would encourage individuals to contribute too.
