"We won't move unless the police ask us to" - Unite strike action at Morrisons

Published by GBC News

Unite members at Morrisons are currently on a 24 hour strike outside the supermarket following a breakdown in negotiations over a pay increase.

The union says it remains open to dialogue and will escalate industrial action if negotiations do not recommence.

The union members, which make up a third of the workforce, are being joined by supporters from the community. Morrisons employs 270 people in total. 

Unite has told Morrisons it is extending the strike action for a further 24 hours - until 10pm Wednesday.
