The Bakers, Food and Allied Workers' Union (BFAWU) is a trade union of workers in the food industry. It was founded in 1847, in Manchester, by a group of Journeymen Bakers.
The next year, the organisation began to operate on a national level, and became the Amalgamated Union of Operative Bakers. In 1861 it played a key role in campaigning to secure the Bakehouse Regulations Act, which was eventually passed in 1863.
In 1964, the union was renamed the Bakers' Union, which then evolved to the Bakers, Food, and Allied Workers' Union.
The Tories’ latest attacks on Trade Unions are about as vindictive and nasty as they could possibly get, and go further than even Thatcher would have dared.
David Cameron claims that he wants a high wage, low tax economy.
The Bakers’ Food and Allied Workers’ Union’s Fast Food Rights campaign is calling for an end to the use of zero hours contracts and demanding an increase in the minimum wage to £10 per hour.
We believe that if MPs really want to represent their constituents properly, they should be screaming out demands for an increase in the minimum wage to at least £10 an hour.
The minimum wage should be increased to £10 per hour so that working people do not have to be supported with benefits, says the Bakers Food and Allied Workers Union (BFAWU).
