WORKERS at Britain’s nuclear weapons factories are to stage a second 24-hour strike in defence of their pensions, their union announced yesterday. Six hundred members of the Unite union will walk out next Tuesday, December 6, at the Aldermaston and Burghfield Atomic Weapons Establishment sites in Berkshire. Bosses want to shut down the workers’ final-salary pension scheme and replace it with an inferior alternative. The first strike took place on November 14. Next Tuesday, the workers will also lobby the Houses of Parliament and meet their local MPs. Talks with management have broken down.
