Felixstowe Port Workers Vote To Strike

Felixstowe Port Workers Vote To Strike

Port workers at Felixstowe have now voted to strike in August, which will likely bring the UK’s largest container port to a standstill.

1,800 members of the Unite Union took part in the ballot, with 92% in favour of industrial action.

Workers are disputing the 5% 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.

There are no set days for strike action to commence next month, with Unite reportedly allowing a ‘short window of opportunity’ for the port to review their position.

Needless to say, the impact of strike action at Felixstowe will have a detrimental impact on UK supply chains.
