Workers at FCC Environment in Hull are striking for 14-days (starting 29 March) for decent sick-pay.
This follows a previous week-long strike in March. FCC is a subsidiary of a Spanish company that describes itself as “a worldwide leader in citizen services, specialised in environment, water and infrastructure”. It reported a 12.7% increase in earnings in the first quarter of 2017, totalling $188 million globally.
The Unison Hull City branch has been campaigning for a better sick-pay scheme, with the company refusing to include this in the latest pay negotiations.
