11-day strike at Tilbury docks

A small group of workers at Tilbury docks, Essex, launched an 11-day strike on Thursday 5 June, against management plans to introduce zero-hours contracts.

The workers, who are employed by Swedish-owned SCA Logistics, also struck for 48 hours in May but say bosses haven’t budged.

Unite officer Jane Jeffery said: “If management is allowed to have its way, we will be turning the clock back 50 years to the bad old days when you had to rely on the tap on the shoulder to see if you had work for the day in the docks.”
