Workers at a small manufacturing company in Leicester have gone on strike after managers tried to force them to wear red tags when they were at lunch or having a tea break.

According to the workforce's regional union representative, "this is a relatively small factory where everyone can see each other most of the time. What sort of management is it, therefore, that has to tag people when they go for lunch and tea breaks? What sort of management is it that lets a dispute like this go so far?"
