Guardian reports on our surprise protest at HR Owen

Guardian coverage of our surprise flashmob of Ferrari’s showrooms today from where our members, Freddy and Angelica, have just been banned after having refused to relinquish their right to strike for a living wage:

——

“The meeting took around five hours and they concluded that we were entitled to our job but we would get it back only being paid £7.50 and we would have to cease all union activity,” Lopez said, speaking through an interpreter. “And because we didn’t accept we were immediately sacked.”

Nevertheless, he was buoyed by the protest. “Even though I’m really upset because of what’s happened, I’m really excited and really glad of the outcome of tonight and seeing everyone’s support.”
