Striking scaffolders protested outside the offices of Great Grimsby Tory MP Lia Nici last week.
Some 60 Unite union members employed by Actavo at British Steel’s Scunthorpe site are in their latest round of strikes in the long running dispute.
The company pays them 15 percent less than the rate set by a national industry agreement.
Five local MPs—including two Tories—have written letters encouraging settling the dispute. In response to the protest, which included a giant inflatable rat, the MP said, “strike action rarely provides satisfaction.”
