3,000 Sellafield workers have gone on strike this morning.
Members of the GMB union are staging a 24-hour stoppage in a dispute over pay. In a ballot, members rejected a 1.5% pay offer.
GMB says minimum safety manning levels will be maintained.
Management at Sellafield say they're finalising arrangements to ensure the safety of the nuclear site when workers go on strike.
Members of the GMB union at the plant have voted to walk out in a dispute over pay. They'll be protesting against a below-inflation pay rise. No date has been set for the industrial action.
We believe that a no-strings attached 1.5% pay increase is both fair and reasonable. We made that offer based on company affordability, and it was accepted by the Prospect Union which has collective bargaining rights for the largest group of our workforce.
The GMB represents around 2,000 of our 10,500 strong workforce. Clearly, we are disappointed at the GMB’s ballot result, and will now start to finalise our arrangements to ensure that the site remains safe and secure during any subsequent action."
