  1. Helicopter engineers strike against British military subcontractor

    Civilian engineers servicing Apache helicopters at Wattisham air base in Suffolk, used by the British military in Afghanistan and Libya, took industrial action September 7 in a dispute over pay differentials.

    The workforce voted 71 to 14 in favour of a strike, while 81 were in favour of action short of industrial action.

    Unite, the union which has paid up members of at least 100 at the air base, said a work-to-rule and overtime ban which started at 6am on Wednesday will last for an indefinite period.

    The union says Wattisham staff received about £3,000 less a year than their counterparts in Hampshire who are employed by the same company, Morson Wynnwith.
