Unilever Workers to Strike in U.K. Pension Protest, BBC Reports
Unilever Plc (ULVR)’s British factory workers will resume strikes this month to protest proposed cuts to the company’s final-salary pension program, the British Broadcasting Corp. reported on its website, citing labor unions.
GMB, Unite and Usdaw called for 24-hour strikes from Jan. 17 to follow last month’s actions, in which they said 2,500 of the company’s employees participated, the BBC said.
Unilever is “deeply concerned by the disproportionate action the trade unions are taking” and it’s not clear how the dispute will be resolved, the company said today in an e-mailed statement.
