UCATT union: 'Members won't stand idly by'

UCATT members employed by Tata Steel have voted overwhelmingly for strike action.

It's due to a running dispute over the company’s plans to close the British Steel Pension Scheme.

UCATT members voted 95.1% for strike action and by 94.9% for action short of strike action on an 80% turnout.

This result shows that members are not going to stand idly by and allow Tata to close their pension scheme.

It is now imperative for Tata to swiftly return to the negotiating table to resolve this dispute.

– Nick Blundell, Regional Secretary for UCATT Wales and South West Region

Union workers at Tata steel have voted to take strike action over their pensions.

The company says it is 'disappointed' saying it is "proposing to continue providing employees with highly attractive and competitive pensions".

Tata steel says it remains hopeful that employees will avoid taking any action that damages its objective of building a successful and sustainable UK business capable of supporting a secure pension scheme.

Reports of 'mini tornado' in Newport

The Met Office says it has received unconfirmed reports of a tornado in Newport.

It says a squally band of rain is likely to have generated the weather phenomenon.

A squally band of rain was reported to have generated a tornado earlier this morning on the northeast side of Newport.

In these very unstable weather situations large thunderstorms are generated which can be accompanied by large variations in wind speed and direction with height through the cloud mass.

When this happens the air can start to rotate to generate the funnel cloud (a tornado not reaching the ground), which can extend down to the surface to give the official tornado.
