Fair- FAIR? I think not.
I have been a shop steward- remember them? Not a ‘union rep’ a bloody shop steward for the Amalgamated Union of Engineering Workers.
I’ve been a shift supervisor so saw it from both sides.
Skilled man, moulding technician- now I work on a machine- keep up or go- plod, you twat, keep up with the machine or we will find a man who can.
That is the essence of my 40-odd years making my employers and ex-employers rich.
Is this fair? I think not.
