Northern Island. March 28, 2020. On Wednesday March 25th around a thousand workers at the food processing plant at Moy Park in Portadown went out on a wildcat strike over coronavirus safety concerns, including adequate social distancing. This was followed by a strike of 80 workers at the ABP food processing plant in Lurgan, Co. Armagh, expressing the same concerns.

On Friday (March 27, Enough 14) 40 workers at the Linden Foods processing factory in Dungannon in Co. Tyrone followed the examples of Moy Park and Lurgan and refused to start their shifts. There were grave concerns over workers exhibiting symptoms being allowed to work, as well as those with family members self-isolating because of being in high risk categories, and inadequate washing facilities.
Don’t let managers turn workers into coronavirus fodder! Strike if the employers cannot offer adequate social distancing and cleaning facilities! Don’t die for their profits!
