On Saturday 4th February 2012, The Bristol General Branch (GMB) of the IWW showed solidarity with Fellow Workers in Sheffield by handing out leaflets outside 2 central branches of Pizza Hut, and travelling further out to talk to staff at 3 other sites.
The Fellow Workers in Sheffield belong to Industrial Union (IU) branch 460, which covers all Pizza Hut workers in the UK. They are taking action to try and make the management listen to their reasonable demands:
Staff at all sites were obviously supportive, and glad to see that their case was being highlighted. We hope to now set up a Bristol branch of IU460 and urge any Pizza Hut workers from any site in the West Country to email us IN CONFIDENCE at email@example.com to get involved.
The Bristol FW’s who showed support were in high spirits despite the cold, and were joined in solidarity by members of the Anarchist Federation (AFED) and the Solidarity Federation (SOLFED).
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO ORGANISE! DON’T LET YOUR BOSS TELL YOU OTHERWISE!
