Subject: HOVIS DISPUTE
After a four hour battle with the Police and scab Management this morning the 16th, nothing came out of the plant for two hours then escorted by the police the first wagon took 40 minutes to travel just over 500 metres,but a price was paid when three of the pickets were arrested at the main junction when the police used heavy handed tacticsand threw a female across the road on to her back narrowly missing the pavement edge and a set of railings.
Comrades we are calling for a show of solidarity the 18th from to support the Hovis workers and the Bakers Union in their heroic strike against zero hours contracts.
Please make every sacrifice they are on a 24 hour picket line, they are fighting on behalf of the whole Trade
Union Movement against Slave Labour.
The address of the plant is Cale Lane, Wigan WN2 1HD,
