Unite have responded to the government’s proposal of changing the way that employees can legally strike by removing the clause preventing illegal striking from their rules.

The move comes following new plans to attempt to prevent crippling strikes in the Trade Unions Bill.


The RMT Union has confirmed that it’s workers at CalMac will take industrial this week as a result over pay, conditions, pensions and potential job losses.

From Wednesday, there will be a ban on all staff working overtime with a 24-hour strike beginning on Friday. One of the main reasons for the strike was due to staff feeling like they were caught “in the crossfire” in a bidding war for the routes used by the ferry service. CalMac and private firm Serco are involved in a bidding war for a new contract for services to the west coast islands that are currently operated by CalMac.

Members voted for industrial action with more than 90% of the ballot favouring going on strike.
