Coca-Cola workers prepare for strike

WORKERS who transport cans of Coca-Cola across the country are to stage a 24-hour strike next week in a row over pay.

Members of Unite at distribution centres will walk out on 4 August. The 200 workers voted by almost four to one to reject a two-year pay deal worth 2.3 per cent each year. Coca-Cola Enterprises has distribution centres in East Kilbride and across England.
