Naval dockyard strike vote

April 18, 2009
Workers at the naval dockyard at Devonport voted for strike action at a meeting on Thursday by 108 votes to five. They rejected a pay offer from their employer, VT Fitzroy that included a lump sum payment with no less than five separate conditions attached to it.    The unions on site - EPMU, PSA and AWUNZ - are claiming a 4.5% pay increase and restoration of the confined space allowance, which they had lost years back.
