BCM Fareva, Nottingham: Usdaw members to take further industrial action as company continues to refuse to talk

Date: 27 August 2021 Members of Usdaw at BCM Fareva will begin a further stoppage on Monday 30 August, which will continue into Tuesday.
The strike follows four previous stoppages in July and August. The Nottingham based manufacturer of consumer pharma and beauty products for leading brands including Boots and The Body Shop continues to press ahead with threats of ‘fire and rehire’ if employees do not accept significant cuts to their terms and conditions.

Daniel Adams - Usdaw National Officer says: “Despite solid support for action over the last two months, the Company has not even responded to the union’s request to sit down with the trade union to try and identify a negotiated way forward.

“Members have been forced to accept significant reductions in their terms and conditions or be dismissed. The Company are kidding themselves if they think this means the dispute is over.  

“Usdaw continues to call on the business to sit down with the union and talk to try and resolve the ongoing dispute.”
