On Saturday 16th October IWW Cymru members held an informational picket outside a cafe in Dolgellau, Gwynedd.

The management had ignored multiple requests by an ex-worker for their P45. The worker urgently needed this P45 to be able to claim benefits in their home country. This was having a real, negative impact on their life.
The worker decided to get their union, the IWW, involved. The employer promised to help “after lockdown” before ignoring our subsequent correspondence and Subject Access Request. We decided to pay the cafe a visit. IWW members held an informational picket, informing potential customers of the situation and asking them not to go to the cafe until the dispute was settled. The employer soon did so and hastily issued a P45 for the worker.
Employers too often think they can get away with mistreating workers, especially migrant workers. The IWW, a DIY union, believes in solidarity and standing up to the bosses. Together we can win!
AN INJURY TO ONE IS AN INJURY TO ALL!
