Update on Kettle Foods

Kettle Foods workers have voted AGAINST union recognition. The vote was 206 to 93 not to join Unite. Private equity group, Lion Capital is said to be cocker-hoop about the vote while the trade union, Unite is dismayed. I am worried about how the 93 workers will be treated now this vote has gone through.

So funding a bunch of union busting scumbags worked as it probably put untold pressure on the workforce. This is a bad day for unionisation.
