DOCK workers from a Suffolk port have protested outside of a Basingstoke shared office space as part of strike action.

Dock workers from Felixstowe Docks picketed outside of Matrix House in Basing View as part of an ongoing dispute over pay with multinational conglomerate CK Hutchinson, which owns the docks.

The workers picketed outside of Matrix House until 2pm in an effort to speak with a representative from Sun Life Financial Inc, a major shareholder of CK Hutchinson, which has offices in the building.

The demonstration took place in the hopes that the shareholders will make CK Hutchinson relent and enter into negotiations with trade union Unite the Union.

The demonstrators stood outside of the Matrix House with a banner and placards, while one demonstrator used a loud hailer to broadcast loud, disruptive noises.

The dock workers said that they were hoping to achieve better pay and conditions by striking.

This was just one of several demonstrations taking place across the UK, following several previous strike actions by Unite the Union members over pay at Felixstowe Docks.
