Faslane workers to stage two-hour strike next week in row over pay

Workers at the Faslane nuclear naval base in Scotland are to stage a two-hour strike next week followed by further walkouts, in a row over pay.

Unite said hundreds of its members at the base, and at another site in Coulport, also on the Clyde, will walk out at 10am on February 19.

There will also be a number of "staged stoppages" from February 20 onwards.

It will be the first time workers at the bases have been on strike for 42 years.
