Unite general secretary Sharon Graham stood with striking Weetabix engineers on the picket line on Wednesday (September 29) at the company’s factory in Kettering.

Sharon Graham vowed that they will win this dispute together – and their victory will give other workers the confidence to fight fire and rehire in their own workplaces.
