Liverpool dock workers to strike for another two weeks

Dock workers are to stage two more weeks of strike action in a row over pay and jobs.

Unite said almost 600 Liverpool port workers will walkout again from October 24 to November 7 – after industrial action in recent weeks.

An offer from port owner Peel Holdings was worth around 8.2% and a real-terms wage cut because of inflation, the union said.

The company said the offer was worth over 10%.

Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said:

“Peel Holdings is hugely profitable and can absolutely afford to pay our members a proper wage increase.

“It did so at Camel Laird so why not at Liverpool docks?

“Instead of negotiations to resolve this dispute, the company has chosen to threaten jobs and repeatedly mislead about the deal it has tabled.

“Our members are standing firm and have their union’s complete support.

“The company must put forward a pay rise they can accept or this strike continues.”
