Workers at a Coca-Cola factory were staging another strike today in a row over pay.

Members of the GMB and Unite based at the site in Milton Keynes were walking out at 6pm for 12 hours after rejecting a 2.5% pay offer.

Unite regional officer Craig Smith said: "Given that Coca-Cola Enterprises make significant profits, we are not prepared to see our members’ wages cut.

"Their hard work has delivered the profits for Coca-Cola Enterprises. Their mortgages, gas bills and council tax have all increased but their pay has fallen flat.

"We are prepared to reopen negotiations to help resolve the dispute but our members are also adamant that the dispute could continue."
