Hundreds of RMT members working for City Link are set to strike for seven days from Tuesday 24 September in a dispute over pay, conditions and an attempt by the company management to railroad through changes to contracts.
In separate ballots of both driver and non-driver staff, majorities in favour of strikes were delivered more than nine to one. The strike begins at 00.01 on Tuesday 24 September and runs until 12.59 on Monday 30 September.
The RMT has called for a boycott of the company and have organised protests on 24 September across the country at locations including Portsmouth, Milton Keynes, Coventry, Norwich, Chelmsford, Heathrow, Warrington, Basingstoke and Guildford.
The workers face pay cuts of up to £4000, enforced overtime, the axing of the bonus scheme and changes to travel arrangements that will leave them further out of pocket.
