Weetabix: No to fire and rehire

Unite members at Weetabix will not accept being fired and rehired. Weetabix must reverse plans and treat their workers with respect.

Why is this important?

Weetabix factory engineers are striking over Weetabix’s brutal ‘fire and rehire’ ultimatum that will slash their wages and conditions.

The workers face changes to their shift and working patterns that would result in some engineers losing as much as £5,000 from their yearly earnings.

Weetabix has performed very strongly since the beginning of the pandemic. In 2020, its turnover grew by 5 per cent to £325 million and profits leapt by almost 20 per cent to £82 million. It has no excuse not to treat these workers fairly.

Add your name and show Weetabix how many of us stand against fire and rehire.
