The following message appears on Bridgwater Unite Community Facebook page:
GERBER STRIKE ENDS! SATURDAY’S RALLY CANCELLED!
Congratulations and solidarity to Bridgwater’s Gerber workers!
Please find below a message from the Unite Full-time Officer for Refresco-Gerber that celebrates a successful negotiated outcome to this long dispute. The March and Rally on Saturday 28th are now cancelled
“Hi Dave & Bridgwater Trades Union Council
The Strike at Refresco.Gerber has been called off. This is due to the Company agreeing in full to reinstate the Sick pay, remove the contentious shift pattern and reinstate the six months shift pay protection.
I thank you for all the time you have devoted to supporting the Industrial Action.
Thanks to all who gave their support!”
