Some 188 staff working for brewery Greene King have voted to strike from next month in a row over pay.

The union Unite said members based in Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk, Eastwood in Nottinghamshire and Abingdon in Oxfordshire would walk out for five days from Monday, 5 December.

The workers brew and distribute the company's products including IPA, Old Speckled Hen and Abbot Ale.

Greene King said it was disappointed its pay offer had been rejected.

Unite said members voted for strike action after Greene King offered them a 3% pay rise and a one-off payment of 650, which it described as a substantial real-terms wage cut because of inflation.
