Striking for an improvement in their pay offer, pickets reported just how busy they and the company had been in the last year, with the company producobg record profits.

Their anger at the pitiful pay offer the company was making given this, was compounded by the fact that seven years ago the company had failed to honour the second part of a two year pay deal giving them a sixty pence an hour increase, claiming they would do so in better times.
