ALMOST 200 MANCHESTER FLOOR MANUFACTURERS STAGE THREE WEEK STRIKE

Almost 200 workers at a Manchester floor company are staging three weeks’ solid strike action,

Staff at Polyflor Ltd, in Manchester, will down tools until 14 October.

Pickets will be staged from 8 to 10am and 4 to 6pm, Monday to Thursday, outside the factory on Radcliffe New Road, M45

Workers voted to strike over a pay dispute. Shortly after they received a message from the company saying ‘process shifts for process workers continue to be suspended…please do not turn up for your shift(s) from 6am on Monday 5th September.’

The company is a leading manufacturer of vinyl floor coverings.

Stephen Boden, GMB Regional Organiser, said:

“These dedicated workers are suffering from the worst cost of living crisis in a generation, rising interest rates and a crumbling economy.

“They need help from the company, and instead their getting vindictive attacks.

“Polyflor has money – it dished out £24 million to shareholders.

“The workers who prop up the company need a proper pay rise too.”
