FIREFIGHTERS at a nuclear enrichment site in Cheshire have voted to strike next week over job losses and an attack on their terms and conditions. GMB members at the Urenco UK site at Capenhurst voted, on a full turnout, for strike action by a resounding 88 per cent. The strike will start on Wednesday at 6am and continue until 7am the following day. The 25 hours that the action will last symbolises the number of workers who have been told they are surplus to requirements. Employees have been told they are to be made redundant and asked to reapply for a new position, which the union says will come with inferior terms.
