Fears of return to empty shelves after staff at UK's biggest port vote to strike for 8 days

Still Waters

Posted (IP: Staff) ·

Britain’s summer of discontent is set to continue after workers at the country’s biggest ports announced an eight day walkout over pay.

Nearly 1,900 workers at Felixstowe Port in Suffolk will stop work on August 21, a move expected to impact 40% of the UK’s container imports.

The industrial action encompasses staff who drive cranes and operate machinery, with operations expected to grind to a near halt.

The strike at Felixstowe was called after the Unite trade union said the port failed to improve its offer of a 7% pay increase.
