Argos distribution centre workers in Bridgwater strike over pensions row
Workers at an Argos distribution centre in Somerset have gone on strike in a row over pensions.
The stoppage at the site in Bridgwater started on Wednesday and so far the Unite union says around 190 workers have taken part.
Parent company Home Retail Group said it was closing its final salary pension scheme and replacing it with a “competitive” alternative.
A spokeswoman said: “We have brought in a number of third-party contractors to keep operations moving and ensure our customers remain unaffected.”
The depot has around 240 staff as well as agency workers.
