Workers at energy provider National Grid are to be balloted for industrial action over pay.

Bosses have offered 2,500 staff in supervisory and control-centre roles a pay “rise” of 7.2 percent over three years. This would mean a pay cut if inflation continues at the present rate.

The Unison and Prospect unions’ ballot could mean action by a quarter of its staff.

Union members are to vote on whether to work to rule and refuse overtime—at a time of year when such workers are pushed to the limit by their huge workloads.

Unite union members are set to join them, and may ballot for strikes.
