    Big Brother's Glyn backs Burberry workers

    Big Brother's Glyn has told the GMB he will be boycotting Burberry and encouraging others to do the same.

    We had an excellent demonstration of support outside the Burberry factory at lunchtime today as the GMB campaign kicked off.

    You can see some of the BBC footage and the BBC News online story here.

    I have written to Ioan Gruffudd who is one of the global faces of Burberry.

    There is also now a local blog about the campaign.

    As I said in the Assembly this week, it is important that we have a united campaign supporting the unions, not a series of half-baked freelance campaigns by opportunists more interested in their own publicity than in the situation at the factory.
