It has been reported that employees of Unilever will be setting up 24 hour strikes throughout January.
The strikes will be in a protest over pensions and the company’s proposal to cut the final salary scheme. This January will see leaders of the relevant unions strike across eight sites.
If the plans to end the salary scheme do go ahead it will see a cut in the staff’s retirement pay – reportedly up to 40%.
Action is likely to affect production of some Unilever products.
