Coca-Cola Enterprise workers at a distribution centre in Wakefield are planning to vote on whether to take industrial action over a pay row.

CCE confirmed today (21 June) that it is currently engaged in pay negotiations at its Milton Keynes and Wakefield sites in the UK. Workers are reported to be angry at a pay offer worth 2.5%.

The company refused to be drawn on reports that a potential strike could result in affecting supplies of its soft drinks brands on a national scale.

But one union official was quoted saying: "Coca-Cola Enterprises now faces the prospect of a strike which we believe will have a significant impact on supplies of Coca-Cola during the hottest months of the year."

A spokesperson for CCE said: "As negotiations are ongoing, it would be inappropriate to comment on specific detail at this time."
