Building Workplace Power in the Food & Drink Industry

GLI is working with Unite the Union and the International Union of Foodworkers (IUF) to develop new residential courses for workplace union representatives in the food, drink and tobacco sector. These are designed to build union power in the workplace, and build national and international coordination between workplace representatives. The food manufacturing sector – big companies who make the stuff you buy in supermarket chiller cabinets – is notorious for poverty wages, tough working conditions and precarious employment.
