§ 94. Mr. Brewis
asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity what steps she is taking to resolve the wage dispute involving creamery workers; and whether she will make a statement.
§ Mr. Hattersley
Unofficial strike action has been taken by workers in some creamery establishments in South-West England, Wales and Scotland during the past two weeks in support of local claims for increases in pay. There has now been a resumption of work in South-West England and in Wales. I understand that meetings are being held today in Glasgow between the employers and unions concerned and in London between representatives of the Union of Shop Distributive and Allied Workers, the Transport 25W and General Workers' Union and Unigate Ltd. I hope that these meetings will lead to a general resumption of normal working.
