Unite members working for Prysmian Cables in Wrexham will escalate their industrial action in their fight for a decent pay rise. Prysmian workers have failed to receive a pay increase since 2019 and have undertaken six days of strike action since 4 November. Two additional 24 hour stoppages are scheduled for the 11 and 17 December.

Following a complete failure by the company to engage with Unite, plans are being put in place to undertake continuous industrial action later in the month.

Unite General Secretary Sharon Graham commented:

“Prysmian have made a strategic decision not to negotiate with Unite during this dispute. Unite will now escalate the dispute with further continuous strike action. And make no mistake, we will back our members with every resource we have, to end this pay freeze and achieve a decent pay increase. Unite has pledged to fight for the jobs pay and conditions of our members - that includes Prysmian.”
