UK - Strike action could hit plants belonging to meat processor Grampian Country Foods if union members vote in favour of coming out. Workers are being balloted over the company&#39;s plans to change its final salary pension scheme. The BBC reported an Amicus spokesman saying: &quot;The company is trying to put all the risk on our members as the new arrangement will give no guarantee on retirement of pensions or benefits.&quot; The current arrangement gives workers a guaranteed income in retirement, but a company spokesman admitted that it was in “significant” deficit and under review. &quot;There are 2300 active members of the final salary pension scheme out of a workforce of 25,000. <i>Source: FWi</i>
