The Rank Group’s Grosvenor Casino Unite union members are the latest UK workers to have voted overwhelming in favor of industrial action, planning a 72-hour strike from Sept. 9 as Britain’s economic crisis takes it toll on pockets.

A total of 150 workers from across Grosvenor Casinos’ seven London venues voted to reject retention bonus payments of £600 and £800 as “totally inadequate,” according to a Unite union statement. The Casino workers want an improved pay deal to counter record inflation, the union said.
