Hunterston nuclear power station workers on strike

Workers employed by Balfour Kilpatrick at Hunterston nuclear power station began a series of weekly strikes today.

The decision to take strike action came after management withdrew a 50p/hour bonus that had been in place for 30 years. There are around 40 employees, members of the Amicus union, involved in the strikes, which will occur every Tuesday and Wednesday indefinitely.

The Labour News Network reports that British Energy bosses have threatened disciplinary action against any of their staff who refuse to cross the Balfour Kilpatrick electricians' picket line.
