Northern Powergrid staff to stage strike in pay dispute

Hundreds of office staff at the electrical distribution firm Northern Powergrid have announced they plan to stage a two-day strike starting on Tuesday.

Administrative staff who are members of the union UNISON will walk out after what they claim is months of talks failed to settle their pay claim. Union leaders say customers could face delays contacting the firm during the strike.

Northern Powergrid is responsible for running the power network that delivers electricity to almost 4 million homes and businesses in the North East, Yorkshire and northern Lincolnshire. The company says it has 'robust arrangements' in place to limit the impact of the strike.

Strike action is due to commence just after midnight on the 1st September and end at midnight on the 2nd September 2015.
