HILLIER'S DISPUTE-TWELVE MONTHS ON

EDM number 287 in 1993-94, proposed by Mike Watson on 15/12/1993.

That this House notes the rally which took place in Reading on 11th December to mark the first anniversary of the industrial dispute at E. Hillier & Son, where workers were sacked and then locked out, for refusing to accept pay cuts of up to 38 per cent.; congratulates the sacked workers for their resilience over the past year in defence of negotiated terms and conditions of employment; further notes the efforts of the trade unions involved in attempting to negotiate a settlement to the dispute, and the refusal of company management to concede the basic human right of trade union representations; and calls on the Government to urge E. Hillier & Son to resolve the dispute on an agreed basis, allowing the sacked employees to return to work and production to resume at an early date. (Relevant registered interest declared).

This motion has been signed by a total of 47 MPs.
