Two of the UK’s busiest ports have announced potential strike action

Two of the UK’s busiest ports have announced potential strike action

Last week, workers at the port of Felixstowe failed to reach an agreement over the level of pay increase with their employer. As a result, they are holding a strike from August 21 – August 29, which is going to impact supply chains and cause disruption to maritime trade. Felixstowe, northeast of London, is a key hub for imports into the UK.

This week, more than 500 workers at the port of Liverpool are set to strike, again due to a dispute of the level of pay increase with their employers. The workers’ Union has provided its full support behind its members to fight for a fair cost-of-living pay increase. Currently, dates are not known for the strike, however, the announcement has confirmed that no strike action will take place at the port of Liverpool before the third week of September.

We will continue to keep you updated as this situation unfolds.
