WATCH - Liverpool dockers march through city centre as strike continues

Over 500 dock workers are striking for a pay increase, as inflation sits at a whopping 10%.

Liverpool dockers received masses of support as they marched through the city centre on Tuesday.

Over 500 members of Unite at the Port of Liverpool are striking for a pay increase, as inflation sits at a whopping 10%.

The Peel Ports Group, which owns Mersey Docks and Harbour Company, said workers had rejected an offer of an 8.3% pay rise, enhanced with a one-off payment of £750.

However, Unite argue that this is a pay cut in real terms, as it sits below the rate of inflation.

Unite North West shared a video of the march on Twitter, receiving a large number of supportive tweets.

@Pagechord said: “Solidarity comrades, I am with you.”

@Paisanopaisa said: “Workers of the world unite.”

The strike action is due to end on October 3, however, if a pay agreement is not reached, Unite the Union members will undertake further strike action.
