Power station construction workers strike over pay
WORKERS building a biomass power station in Templeborough blocked rush hour traffic in a dispute over pay.
Dozens of construction staff (pictured) picketed the Sheffield Road site this morning (Thursday), stopping traffic between Sheffield and Rotherham.
The strikers – members of the UCATT, GMB and Unite unions – later joined junior doctors picketing at Rotherham Hospital.
Ged Dempsey, union convenor for Unite, said the protest was “against exploitation”.
