Thought for the day

"I am convinced that if we are to get on the right side of the world revolution, we as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values. We must rapidly begin the shift from a "thing-oriented" society to a "person-oriented" society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism and militarism are incapable of being conquered." -- Martin Luther King 

Protests took place yesterday in Tilbury, Essex; Coventry; Bristol; and Rugeley, Staffordshire, GMB Regional Organiser Steve Garelick told MailOnline.

Videos and photos shared on social media show warehouse workers sitting in the canteen and refusing to work after being offered a pay rise branded 'pathetic' by the union GMB.

A worker from the Rugeley site told BirminghamLive that the walk-out had 'affected a lot of customer shipments'.
