A very striking week. UWU fights the rotten PMFresh, and First Union cottons on to Cotton On in NZ.

Left to Right - Bill, Imogen, Feargal

This week we are joined by Imogen, who is an organiser for the United Workers Union, to talk about a potential strike at PMFresh, which supplies salads to various businesses such as Hungry Jack's or Woolworths. The strike has now been called off as all the demands were met.
We also talk to Ben, who is an organiser for First Union, to talk about the Cotton On workers' strike.
