Workers protested outside Fawley oil refinery as it emerged that some workers are getting paid just 60 euros a day for a minimum 10 hour shift…that’s £4.80 an hour at most, well under the minimum wage. The proper rate is at least four times as much. There has already been a victory against similar illegal practises in Teesside after a sustained campaign of mass direct action – if Fawley don’t pay the proper rate, more protests will follow.
UPDATE: VICTORY!! AFTER A DAY’S STRIKE ACTION, ALL WORKERS ARE NOW BEING PAID THE PROPER RATE
