Strikes at major pig processor

A strike at a pork factory in North Yorkshire could continue for the next three Mondays in a dispute over pay, according to Hull Live.

 

Workers at Karro Foods in Malton, North Yorkshire, went on strike last week and staff at their Hull factory went on strike on Tuesday (July 16).

 

Farmers Guardian understands some farmers who were due to have pigs processed at the site in Malton had their load cancelled as a result of the strike.

According to the Hull Live website, the workers went on strike after demands for a 50p-per-hour pay rise were rejected.

 

A spokesperson for Karro Foods told Hull Live it was ‘disappointed’ by the strikes.

 

It also said in the long term its business performance did not allow it to make pay rises.

 

Karro Foods is a leading producer of bacon, gammon, sausages and cooked meats, and employs around 3,000 people across the country.
