Janice is furious when Linda sacks Bobbi for substandard work. She warns Mike that the girls won't stand for being bossed by Linda. Nita demands Vik gets rid of Steve as his presence makes her feel uncomfortable. Debs and Duggie decide to distract Natalie by cooking her a meal. Duggie encourages Natalie to let those who care for her to share her grief. Vinny is put out when she opens up to Duggie and not him. Janice leads the factory girls in striking until Mike sorts Linda out. Bobbi feels bad and thinks she should resign but Janice refuses to let her. Hayley defuses the situation by suggesting they put their case against Linda to Mike. Janice goes with her but is put out when she's not allowed to be very militant. Hayley asks Mike to clarify the chain of command. He agrees to tell Linda she's not the girls' boss and they return to work. Natalie takes Vinny along to the meal with Debs and Duggie. Natalie feels better for getting out of the pub. An angry Mike tells Linda she has nothing to do with the workforce, just sales.
