Lorry drivers working for Eddie Stobart have been meeting to finalise plans for a 2 day strike. The men, who formerly worked for Tesco at their distribution centre in Doncaster, say their new employers are putting almost two hundred jobs at risk of redundancy.
The haulage company say the changes to operations at the depot are necessary and the firm will do everything it can to find staff other jobs within the company. But the drivers say the alternatives are unnacceptable, and a 48 hour walkout will go ahead from Tuesday.
