Dozens of GMB Union members at the engineering firm Doosan Babcock in Tipton have walked out for the second consecutive month after negotiations with management failed in September. 

More than 90 per cent staff voted in favour of strike action in October and held strike days on 2 and 3 November, as well as on 30 November and 1 December. 

Stuart Harrison, GMB Organiser, said: 

“The message from our members is clear: you must value your skilled workers. 

“Doosan Babcock need to work with GMB as we support our workers through the process. 

“There’s a national shortage of skilled workers and the firm should ensure they’re the heart of the business, not just a commodity.”
