Unite ballots Doncaster drivers on strike

Trade union Unite is balloting some 200 drivers at Tesco’s Doncaster distribution centre on strike action, after the were put on 90 days notice by new employers Eddie Stobart.

The drivers were transferred from Tesco to Stobart last month and last week Stobart issued the termination notices.

They are being balloted by Unite on strike action and industrial action short of a strike at the threatened loss of their jobs. The ballot closes on Wednesday 12 September.
