Please rush messages of support to: DSGStrike@yahoo.com
In an unprecedented and historic vote, Unite members across DSG have sent the Board a clear message that a 1% pay offer is not enough and we are ready to take industrial action in support of our 8% claim.
We have given our union a massive 75% mandate to take full blown Strike Action and another 85% mandate to take other forms of Industrial Action.
Mike McCartney, Unite National officer, congratulated the workforce on their great show of determination and their willingness to do what it takes to end the misery of year-on-year pay cuts.
Strike Action begins on October 15th and we will mount pickets across every site. This will be followed by 3 Regional 1 Day Strikes each week in October.
