Workers at the Kingspan Group at Greenfield, Holywell have today been stunned by the announcement from their employer that it intends to slash pay rates by 40 per cent. Unite was given no advance notice of the decision and has condemned the decision as completely unacceptable.
Daryl Williams Unite regional officer commented: “For Kingspan to take such draconian action is huge kick in the teeth for their skilled and loyal workforce. Employers should be working closely with trade unions, not making arbitrary decisions at this time of national emergency.
“Details are still emerging but I am seeking urgent Legal advice on behalf of our members. I am also working with my Unite counterparts across the other UK sites in order to co-ordinate our response.
“We are pressing the company for an urgent meeting on Monday at the Greenfield site.”
