The most shared article of the year – with more than 350 shares – was our report of 2 Sisters slamming suggestions it was facing strike action at two of its Yorkshire operations in April. A union accused the food giant of trying to offset the extra cost of the National Living Wage by cutting a number of other working benefits.
According to the Bakers, Food and Allied Workers Union, 2 Sisters told staff at its Pennine Foods site in Sheffield, and the Fox’s Biscuit factory in Batley, that it planned to cut Sunday and Bank Holiday pay, overtime and time off in lieu for working unsociable hours.
