Defence Support Group (DSG) workers in the Unite union began a national ballot on Friday of last week for strikes over pay. It is set to close on 3 October.
Workers walked out in unofficial protests over pay at DSG sites earlier this year. They have rejected bosses’ offer of a 1 percent pay rise by 85 percent in a consultative ballot. They are demanding 8 percent.
DSG repairs, maintains and overhauls military equipment for the ministry of defence, but now faces privatisation.
Its bosses are sitting on a £65 million cash mountain, which would go back to the Treasury.
Workers should vote yes to strike and get back the money their labour create.
