Around 70 HGV drivers and shunters at Muller’s Stonehouse factory in Gloucestershire are to escalate their dispute over imposed rota changes with 11 days of all-out action from 19 to 29 October. 

The employer is insisting they work at least one day every weekend, in breach of an agreement with Unite. The action will hit deliveries of dairy products to Waitrose, Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury's and Tesco.
