AWE No Strike But Pay Rise

While the rest of us are facing cuts and job losses, the government has awarded an above average pay rise for AWE staff.

Scientists and mathematicians in a pay dispute at the atomic bomb factories have voted overwhelmingly to accept a 2.5 per cent pay officer.

Members of the union Prospect at AWE in Aldermaston and Burghfield took protest action last month after being offered a pay rise of less than two per cent.

The 'boffins' were planning a one-day strike but it was called off when an improved offer was made by the bomb factory bosses.

Its not as if the workers contributed anything useful to society, they make it far more dangerous for the rest of us. I call on these workers to do something more useful with their training and experience.
