Nuclear staff in strike ballot
Workers at both of Scotland’s nuclear power stations are to be consulted over industrial action in a dispute over pay and conditions. The GMB union said it would hold a consultative ballot at the Hunterston B and Torness stations in the coming weeks.
The union is in dispute with EDF Energy over pay, terms and conditions. An EDF spokesman said: “We’re sharing open and constructive dialogue in a period where costs are going up and income from electricity generation is going down.”
