Port workers told not to strike

Issue No. 2156

Boat workers at the Port of Liverpool who were on the verge of striking have been threatened with losing £5,000 and further redundancies if they take action.

The 46 workers, who tie up ships, are being balloted for action after being told they will be transferred to another company.This will mean a pay cut of £10,000 and an end to the final salary pension scheme.

A letter from harbour master Captain Steve Gallimore told the workers any strike would lead to job cuts.
