Yard workers could walk

Workers at UK shipyard Cammell Laird are threatening strike action in a dispute over pay.

An overtime ban and other action short of a full strike is set to begin on 11 September at the Liverpool builder and repairer, local media reported.

And the GMB union said that if meaningful talks were not resumed, a 24-hour stoppage would be called for 22 September.

A total of 560 workers voted for a walk-out.

The yard is not commenting.
