MMP workers fight on

A visit to the firmly shut Meyr Melnhof packaging plant on Bootle and after 13 weeks of being Locked Out over 150 workers continue their struggle for justice. No-one had a bad word for the work of their union, Unite, but plenty for local and international management of the Austrian owned multi-national company.

The workers re-iterated their demands for the factory to be re-opened or payment of a redundancy package based on a 2008 negotiated agreement, with all charges dropped against four sacked workers that Merseyside Police have said have committed no offence.
