New five year contract for 2 Sisters

first_imgBirmingham-based 2 Sisters, which runs Holland’s Pies and Fox’s Biscuits, has signed a five-year contract with Sheffield-based Gunstones Bakery, and elsewhere at the company there are further BFAWU strikes planned.A spokesperson for 2 Sisters told British Baker: “We can confirm we have secured a new five-year bakery contract at Gunstones.”2 Sisters acquired Gunstones from Northern Foods in 2011, and recruited around 200 extra staff two years later (the site already employed around 1,400 people) to “meet demand”. The company said at the time shoppers were switching to more fashionable lines such as flatbreads, and demand had increased as a result.Elsewhere, 2 Sisters is in dispute at two of its other plants. Members of the Bakers and Allied Food Workers Union (BFAWU) staged a 48-hour walk out last week (5 June) at its Pennine Foods factory, over plans to change their employment contracts. A week-long strike is also planned to begin at the factory from 16 June, (correct at the time of going to press).BFAWU members at RF Brookes factory in Rogerstone, Newport also conducted a 48-hour strike from 2-4 June over changes to their working conditions. The union is in talks with the company and the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service at the Rogerstone factory. Last month Birmingham-based 2 Sisters said avian influenza impacted its financial results for the year ending 1 August 2015.last_img read more

The Top Five G1 Climax 29 Matches (So Far)

first_img1. Will Ospreay vs. Kazuchika Okada (Night 7)[Replay ‘G1 CLIMAX 29 Night 6’ on July 19th, 2019]9TH MATCH:G1 CLIMAX 29 – A BLOCK TOURNAMENT MATCH @rainmakerXokada vs. @WillOspreay!!Watch on New Japan World▶︎ #njpw #njpwworld #G1Climax #g129— njpwworld (@njpwworld) July 21, 2019This isn’t just the match of the tournament so far but may end up being the best match of the year. Both Ospreay and Okada are on the top of their game as they told a wonderful story going back and forth, countering each other at every turn. Ospreay pulled out everything in his arsenal as he tried to make history and become the first IWGP junior heavyweight champion to defeat the heavyweight champion.  The Korakuen Hall crowd was all-in, especially down the stretch as they traded near falls. Ospreay looked to secure the win with the Stormbreaker but Okada escaped and connected with two thunderous Rainmaker clotheslines to earn the win. We’re quickly approaching the halfway point of the annual G1 Climax 29 presented by New Japan Pro Wrestling. The annual tournament is a showcase for some of the best matches of the year and this one has lived up to the hype with some incredible action.As usual, the action has lived up to the hype so far with the first seven nights delivering some incredible wrestling matches. Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearSome background on the G1 Climax: the tournament features 20 heavyweights which are split into two blocks of 10 competitors. Two points are given for a victory, one point for a draw, and zero points for a loss. At the end of the round-robin portion of the tournament, the top point scorers in each block with square off in the finals.The winner of that match will earn the right to challenge for the IWGP heavyweight championship on Jan. 4, 2020 at Wrestle Kingdom 14 inside the Tokyo Dome. If current champion Kazuchika Okada wins the tournament, he will choose his Wrestle Kingdom opponent.While there is still plenty of the tournament yet to come, it has already featured some awesome matches. Here’s a look at the top five matches of the G1 Climax 29. 5. KENTA vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi (Night 3)G1 CLIMAX 29(7/14)を公開!メインはAブロック公式戦、@tanahashi1_100 VS @KENTAG2S!両者譲らぬ一進一退の攻防!両者の盟友、柴田の前で勝利を掴みとるのはどちらだ!?登録&視聴▷ #njpwworld #G1Climax #G129— njpwworld (@njpwworld) July 14, 2019One of the biggest stories of the tournament is proving that this is KENTA, the Japanese superstar and not the Hideo Itami that struggled in NXT the past few years.Both of them looked like they approached this match with something to prove. There was KENTA connecting again and again with his signature kicks as if he was trying too smash a hole in the “Ace” with Tanahashi selling the damage but keep coming back.When Tanahashi put together some offense including a High Fly Flow, it looked like it was game over but instead, KENTA blocked a second HFF and finished off the Japanese legend with a penalty kick and the Go 2 Sleep. 4. EVIL vs. Kota Ibushi (Night 3)G1 CLIMAX 29 大田区大会!第8試合Aブロック公式戦、@ibushi_kota VS @151012EVIL!両者ともにフルスロットル!どちらも譲らぬ激しい攻防!果たして最後までリングに立っているのはどちらだ!?登録&視聴▷ #njpwworld #G1Climax #G129— njpwworld (@njpwworld) July 14, 2019Sometimes wrestling just needs to make sense. And it made sense that EVIL would focus on Ibushi’s bad ankle that he hurt on the opening night of the tournament. The match was all about EVIL looking to take advantage of the injury, looking to destroy that ankle while Ibushi had to find a way to win without his usual mobility.When Ibushi connected with a flurry of slaps and punches, EVIL countered with a vicious kick to the bad ankle that put Ibushi on the mat and crushing his hopes in the process.Ibushi put together one last effort down the stretch including several Bome Ye knee strikes but EVIL was too strong as he connected with Everything is EVIL to score the win. A simple yet very effective story. 3. Will Ospreay vs. Kota Ibushi (Night 5)[Replay ‘G1 CLIMAX 29 Night 5’ on July 18th, 2019]9TH MATCH:G1 CLIMAX 29 – A BLOCK TOURNAMENT MATCH @ibushi_kota vs. @WillOspreay!!Watch on New Japan World▶︎ #njpw #njpwworld #G1Climax #g129— njpwworld (@njpwworld) July 19, 2019The talk heading into this match was how far these daredevils would venture into the danger zone in what they would do. Neither are afraid of taking risks — huge, scary risks — at the expense of putting on a memorable performance.Instead, they focused on telling a story with each going into the match banged up with Ospreay dealing with a bad neck and Ibushi still suffering from an ankle injury. There were still some risky spots but because there were fewer, it made them feel more important with each that connected.Both of them came out unscathed while putting on an innovative display of athleticism and violence in what turned out to be their latest gem.2. Jon Moxley vs. Tomohiro Ishii (Night 6)Tomohiro Ishii ‘DIVE!!!’Sign up Now & Stay tuned to #G1Climax #g129 #njpwworld— njpwworld (@njpwworld) July 19, 2019These two took the fight to one another the second the bell rung and it was all action from there. As expected between these two, this turned into a brawl that went into the crowd. While they were outside the ring for a long time but Kevin Kelly correctly said on the broadcast the crowd would have “tarred and feathered” the referee if he had counted them out.As wild as this got, maybe the craziest thing of the tournament so far was seeing Ishii — a grounded, no-nonsense, true-blooded fighter — jumping off the top rope and connecting with a splash that sent Moxley through a table outside the ring.Neither came out as the loser in this hard-hitting battle even though Moxley scored the two points in the win. The former Dean Ambrose has dialed it up since leaving WWE and this is the wild and dangerous Jon Moxley who is firmly putting his stamp on this tournament.last_img read more

Third Possible Case of COVID-19 in Broward Linked to Port Evergades

first_imgThe Regal Princess was cleared by the CDC and docked last night at Port Everglades after two crew members tested negative.Officials say the cruise ship was initially scheduled to dock Sunday morning but was delayed due to two crew members that may have been exposed to COVID-19.The crew members, who have since tested negative, were previously onboard the Grand Princess, which has around 20 infected crew members.That ship will dock in Oakland, California today. Broward County health officials have been advised by the Florida Department of Health that the previously announced third presumptive positive case of COVID-19 in Broward County is related to Port Everglades, making two of the three presumptive positive cases in Broward County related to the Port and cruise ships.The third Broward County presumptive case of coronavirus is related to Port Everglades, according to Broward County Commissioner Michael Udine.— Brian Entin (@BrianEntin) March 9, 2020last_img read more
