SPECIALIST TRANSPORT UNION RMT confirmed today that a key group of port engineering and servicing staff will be striking for 48 hours this Thursday and Friday in a dispute over pay justice.

The workers are employed by global shipping logistics and maintenance outfit MacGregors at a number of key locations including Aberdeen, Newcastle and Portsmouth.

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- reflected in massive votes for action – and they should start respecting the views of the workers delivering these highly-skilled services.
“RMT remains available for talks.”
