GMB, the union for nuclear workers, is balloting 3,000 members at Sellafield for strike action after the company ignored requests for further talks and said it would put in place a below-inflation pay offer.

Sellafield offered 1.5% in June which was rejected by 88% of GMB members on site during a consultative ballot. The Unite union is also balloting its 2,000 members at Sellafield.

The strike ballot begins on Monday, 14 August 2017 and will close on Monday, 4 September 2017.
