Workers at Tata Steel plants around Britain are set to vote on strikes to defend their pensions. The biggest union, Community, began a two-week ballot on Wednesday of last week with the Unite and GMB unions following soon after.
Bosses want to close the British Steel pension scheme to new members in April of next year and stop it accruing in value.
They plan to remove workers’ right to get their full pensions at 60.
Around 800 workers rallied at Port Talbot in South Wales last Saturday.
