Weetabix workers suspend strike action at Northamptonshire sites
Planned strike action by Weetabix workers over a row about pay and conditions has been suspended. The union, Unite, said "Constructive talks" had taken place and action due to take place every Wednesday until September has been halted. Unite said members voted to strike as the business was looking to "Fire and rehire" staff, resulting in cuts to shift allowances that could see some workers lose up to £5,000 a year. Weetabix told the union that it had "Agreed not to make any changes to the engineer's contracts until at least 1 September", Unite said. Unite regional officer Sean Kettle said: "Following constructive talks with Weetabix today Unite has agreed to suspend the strike action which was due to begin tomorrow.
