More than 600 workers at Rosyth naval dockyard in Fife walked out in a wildcat strike on June 21 over an attack on their pensions. The former Royal navy base was privatised in 1987 under Thatcher's Tories and is now owned by Babcock International. The situation as it stands means workers who paid into the company pension scheme can expect on average a reduction of around £60-£70 a week on the expected return.
