Eurotunnel say they're surprised that their train drivers may vote to strike. Unite say they're balloting for strike action after one of their members was dismissed. The company say he was guilty of gross misconduct, but Unite say Eurotunnel are "heavy handed and cruel".
The driver, Ray Field, who was dismissed was diagnosed with possible skin cancer after a GP noticed lesions on his skin. Earlier in March he had requested holiday for the following six days after his medical appointment, which was refused by the company.
Unite say any action will close Eurotunnel's Le Shuttle service at the peak holiday period.
