Private Sector pension dispute - Unilever Colman's of Norwich
Message of support
On behalf of the Southend Trades Union Council, I wish to express our support for your members taking strike action in defence of their pension scheme at Unilever Colman's site in Norwich.
The Southend TUC believes that private sector pensions are one of the greatest scandals of our age. It is a national disgrace that only 40% of private sector workers are currently in an employer-sponsored pension scheme.We therefore believe that the action your members are taking in defence of their pension scheme id fully justified.
We hope the strike action is a success and that the employer is forced to reconsider their plans to close the pension scheme.
Yours in solidarity
Southend Trades Union Council
