Firefighters at the Sellafield nuclear site are to go on strike on 24 July in a dispute over pay, the GMB union announced.

On 6 July union members voted to walk out for several 24-hour periods in a dispute over pay grading. It says many firefighters at the plant are performing roles above what they are paid to do, such as paramedic work.

Chris Jukes, GMB senior organiser, said last week that they had attempted to negotiate for several years and had only opted to strike as a “last resort”.
