Liverpool dock workers reject latest offer as Felixstowe workers vote for overlapping walkout

Workers at the port of Liverpool have unanimously rejected a last minute pay increase offer as Felixstowe workers vote in favour of a second walkout later this month

 

Workers voted unanimously in favour of strike action having rejected a last-minute offer from Peel Ports Ltd, the operator at Liverpool port, of 7% plus a one-time payment of £750. There was a 99% vote in favour of strike action from an 88% turnout. The rejected offer now results in action of the previously planned strike at the port of Liverpool from 06:00 on 19th September to 06:00 on 3rd October.

A separate ballot at the port of Felixstowe found the latest pay offer from CK Hutchison Holdings Ltd unsatisfactory with the Unite Union voting in favour of a second 8-day strike that will overlap the scheduled Liverpool action, running from 27th September to 5th October.
