Weetabix 24-hour strike will start at 7pm today as dispute continues about shift pay

Date: 16 August 2021 Usdaw members at the Weetabix AP4 plant in Kettering, which produces cereal bars, have rejected a company offer intended to resolve the dispute and will start a 24-hour stoppage from 7pm on Monday 16 August.
Ed Leach – Usdaw Area Organiser says: “During the last fortnight we have called off strike action twice to allow for further talks and for the company to make an offer. The offer was put to a ballot which concluded today. The majority of our members rejected the company’s offer therefore strike action will take place at 7pm today.

“We are disappointed that the company has indicated at this stage there will be no change to their position. If this is the case, then further stoppages will follow.”
