The strike might go until August 29.

Members of the labor union Unite who are employed at the Port of Felixstowe are now on day three of a strike that is scheduled to last for a total of eight days.

According to Unite, workers at Felixstowe Dock and Railway Company rejected a 7% salary increase since it was less than the pace at which inflation was occurring.

Steven Brown, who drives a tow truck, “never expected or wanted” to get involved in the strike, which is the first one involving dock workers in the last 30 years.

The Felixstowe resident, who is now 52 years old and has spent the last 38 years working at the port, said that

“With the rate of inflation as it is, it’s 12%, all we’re asking for is a fair pay arrangement compared to the cost of living.”

Within the last two years, the business has generated a total of £233 million in profits, of which the stockholders have received £100 million.

He asserts that some port workers who have worked there for the better part of four decades, in addition to some more recent hires, are participating in the strike.
