Unilever Faces Strike Action in the UK

Workers at Unilever UK, the food and household goods manufacturer, have voted in favour of industrial action in protest over the company’s plans to scrap its final salary pension scheme. According to Unite, the country’s biggest trade union, it will be the first ever national strike at Unilever.

 

Unite members have voted ‘yes’ to strike action by nearly 85%, with about 92% voting in favour of action short of a strike. This will mean walkouts are likely across the company’s 12 sites during December.

 

Unite represents workers at Unilever sites including: Purfleet (Essex); Port Sunlight (Wirral); Warrington (Cheshire); Leeds; Crumlin (Wales); Gloucester; Manchester; Burton-on-Trent (Staffordshire); Research & Development, Port Sunlight (Wirral); Research & Development, Colworth (Bedford); IT, St. David’s Park, Chester.
