Shanah Tovah to the Scottish Jewish community. Even though we cannot be together with family and our whole community, we hope that people are still able to celebrate and we wish everyone a sweet new year. 🍎🍯
Great to see @ScotGov have announced their support for @DJohnsonMSP’s Protection of Workers Bill. @GMBScotOrg’s Bob Deavy gave evidence to @SP_Economy in support of the bill, which would see increased protection for retail workers facing violence or abuse.https://t.co/Pk4fUesOE2
Thanks @NeilFindlay_MSP for raising the strike at @BurtonsBiscuits at #FMQs today. Burton's refuse to improve upon a paltry pay offer that amounts to just 14p an hour, unless the workforce fund it from their own pockets. An appalling way to treat key workers during a pandemic.
Workers at @BurtonsBiscuits have worked through lockdown and production actually INCREASED during the pandemic. But instead of rewarding the workforce, Burton’s bosses refuse to move on a pay offer of just 14p an hour for the lowest paid. The workers at Burton’s deserve better.
Thank you to @ScottishTUC General Secretary @RozFoyer for visiting our members on strike at @BurtonsBiscuits. If a Fair Work agenda exists in Scotland, Burton’s management have made a mockery of it - refusing a proper pay rise unless the workers fund it out of their own pockets.
