More than 1,000 construction workers staged an unofficial strike at the Sellafield nuclear site on Friday of last week in a row over jobs.

They left the site in Cumbria over plans to make a union shop steward and two health and safety representatives redundant.

The workers, in the Unite and GMB unions, are employed by contractor Mitie. They are involved in a number of building, maintenance and security programmes at Sellafield.
