The Unite union said all 39 members at Ifor Williams Trailers, Deeside, voted for the stoppages after being a offered a 1.5% rise by the company.

Ifor Williams has previously said its factory has been significantly affected by the economic downturn and it had to remain competitive.

It has claimed its offer of £9.10 per hour was above average for Deeside.

The company has rejected union claims it has refused to hold more talks.

Strikes were also staged on 19 and 28 April.
