WORKERS at Portsmouth’s port will be going on strike next month over an ongoing pay dispute.

RMT members employed by shipping logistics and maintenance firm MacGregors will strike for 24 hours on November 9 and November 12.

RMT general secretary Mick Cash said: ‘This dispute is about a key group of port-based staff fighting for a fair pay deal that protects and enhances their standard of living and sends out a key message that this trade union will not accept austerity and attrition in the shipping and offshore industry.

‘The company are well aware of the feeling on the ground and they should start respecting the views of the workers.’
