Hundreds of production workers at a shoe manufacturer in Somerset are to launch a work-to-rule in a row over pay and conditions, with warnings of future strike action.

Members of the Community union at Clarks Shoes in Street voted by 4-1 to take action.

The union said its 230 members are angry at plans to impose a 3.5% pay award, linked to changes to wage arrangements which it said reduced the value of the rise to 2.6%.
