Have your say

PORT workers in Portsmouth have voted to take industrial action.

Unite members at Portsmouth International Port unanimously voted in favour of action but stopped short of a strike.

Workers have disputes with the management of the port, which is owned by the city council, over plans that could see them lose £1,300 a year.

They also have disputes over both security and health and safety.

Members are due to decide what action to take over the weekend, with an announcement expected Monday.

Unite said talks have been ‘fruitless.’
