GMB members take action at Cinch Connectivity Solutions

Cinch ConnectivityGMB members at US-owned Cinch Connectivity Solutions in Worksop in Nottinghamshire are today on strike over pay.

More than 30 workers are taking action from 7am to 4pm, and from tomorrow will carry out an overtime ban.

GMB regional organiser Sue Wood said: “The dispute is over pay. Our members are lower paid skilled workers manufacturing connectors for the aerospace industry. The majority of their work is for the MOD.

“The members are fighting for a living wage. They want a fair days pay for a fair days work. Currently many of our members have to rely on benefits to top up their pay which is outrageous and unacceptable.

“Members have support from the local MP John Mann who stood on the picket line with them on April 14th and is highlighting our campaign on his website. The employer is currently refusing to enter into further negotiations.”
