Eight Day Felixstowe Strike Now Set
The Felixstowe port strike has now been set as eight days, running from Sunday 21st August until Monday 29th , which will bring the UK’s largest container port to a standstill.
Workers are disputing the final 7% increase pay offer from the port, after receiving 1.4% last year. The union argues that with inflation over 11%, the latest offer is effectively a pay cut.
Needless to say, the impact of strike action at Felixstowe will have a detrimental impact on UK supply chains.
