Freight transport and logistics workers at the UK port of Felixstowe recently announced plans for eight days of industrial action. Workers started striking on August 21, when they rejected a pay offer of 7% plus a bonus.

The strike will cause more congestion in UK supply chains. Felixstowe is the largest container port in the UK, handling more than 40 percent of the country’s shipping containers. Some of the world’s largest ships serve the port, which processes more than four million 20 foot containers a year from some 2,000 ships.
