Corus workers vote to strike

Corus
steelworkers have voted to strike in protest at compulsory job losses announced
by the firm.

Workers
at the firm’s Scunthorpe plant in Lincolnshire voted by 60 per cent in favour
of strikes and 83 per cent for industrial action short of a strike.

The
ballot was called by the Iron and Steel Trades Confederation in protest at job
losses announced by Corus at the factory last year.

The
company has since revealed plans to cut more than 6,000 jobs across the
country, mainly in Wales and the north east of England.
