A London Gateway to union rights

Issue No. 2368

Activists in the Unite union protested at the Uniserve depot outside the port of Tilbury, Essex, on Thursday of last week.

They are demanding union recognition at the planned London Gateway deep sea container port for the Thames Estuary in Thurrock, Essex.

Unite says London Gateway owners DP World “resolutely refuse” to recognise unions. 

The union adds that far from creating jobs it could undermine jobs at other ports, such as Tilbury.
