Workers at McVitie's, Tollcross gathered outside of one of their biggest clients this morning in protest.

The demonstration outside of the Glasgow Fort M&S store takes place two days after almost 500 workers were issued formal redundancy notices. 

The Tollcross site is a major manufacturer of mallow biscuits for the retail giants own products.

GMB Scotland Organiser David Hume said: "Our campaign to save jobs and bring-in new investment continues.

"It's been a difficult few days' for the Tollcross workforce, there's no doubt about it, but the extreme bad faith shown by pladis over their redundancy notice announcement has only served to strengthen our members' resolve. 

"This demo is about sending a message to McVitie's key clients like M&S, and to keep building support among the good people of Glasgow, that pladis' actions are unexplained and unjust, and that these workers can and should have a future in the East End. 

"It's their factory and their future, and they are going to keep fighting."

A spokesman for Pladis said: "We understand the news of this proposal has been difficult for our colleagues at Tollcross. 

"Our priority is to provide them with the support they need and to deliver a full and meaningful consultation process." 

M&S has been approached for comment.
