Meter readers have measure of bosses

Issue No. 2401

Nearly 500 workers at EDF energy firm were set to strike on Tuesday and Thursday of next week over pay. They are members of the Unite union, and include workers who fix and install electricity metres.

The dispute is over EDF’s national pay offer and two regional disparities that were meant to be resolved in 2012.

The strike will affect EDF centres in Bexley Heath, Bristol, Camden, Crawley, Exeter and Plymouth.
