Tilbury port workers go all out

Issue No. 2411

Workers at Tilbury docks began an all out strike on Monday of last week. 

They are striking against attempts by their employer SCA Logistics to drive down wages by introducing zero hours contracts. 

Workers struck for 48 hours in May and 11 days in June. 

Unite regional official Jane Jeffrey told Socialist Worker, “They’re a solid bunch and we’ve had solid picket lines. The picket line is building solidarity and making the fight visible.”
