The article suggests that the victory at Hinkley ‘C’ is the shape of things to come. If that means workers will get an equitable deal from employers at last – or will run companies themselves as profit-sharing co-operatives – it is to be applauded.

As many as 900 workers took over a power station site in Somerset after bosses disgracefully refused payment for hours lost during Storm Emma last week. But now, after reaching an agreement over the previously refused pay, it appears the workers’ tactics have won the day against their unscrupulous bosses.

The site – part of the controversial Hinkley Point C nuclear facility – was left completely inaccessible to staff after a period of heavy snow last week. Workers were told to go home on Thursday after the snow got particularly bad, but the site was closed completely over the weekend.

Staff were then reportedly told that they would be withheld weekend payment as a result of their not being able to get to work because of snow, sparking outrage amongst the workforce and leading to a sit-in.
