Felixstowe Strike Set For Eight Days
The Felixstowe strike has now been set as eight days running from Sunday 21st August until Monday 29th, which will bring the UK’s largest container port to a standstill.
Workers are disputing the final 7% increase pay offer from the port, after receiving 1.4% last year. The union argues that with inflation over 11%, the latest offer is effectively a pay cut.
Needless to say, the impact of strike action at Felixstowe will have a detrimental impact on UK supply chains.
Atlantic Pacific will continue to watch the situation closely and update on any developments.
