More talks to resolve Ifor Williams Trailers strikes

Union officials and managers at a Flintshire trailer making firm are to hold more talks in a bid to end a pay dispute.

Both parties involved in the row at Ifor Williams Trailers (IWT), Deeside, have met and will sit down together again on Wednesday.

Workers have staged four one-day strikes.

Unite union has rejected a 1.5% rise and said members wanted the same pay as workers at the firm's Corwen factory.

Last month, the firm claimed its offer of £9.10 per hour was above average for Deeside.

A company spokesman said on Monday: "Pay talks between Ifor Williams Trailers and the Unite union, facilitated by Acas, are continuing and a further meeting is planned later this week."

Unite said talks would resume at 0900 BST on Wednesday at a secret location.
