Karro Foods workers in Hull got a 7.1% pay rise over two years.
Trish, a shop steward and main organizer of the dispute, said when they went on strike, workers didn’t believe they could win but had to do something.
Many of them have to spend the day doing back-breaking work for minimum wage. Shockingly, a large chunk of the workforce depends on food banks.
This victory will increase the confidence of the workers of Karro as well as of the broader labor and trade union movement that has supported them.
