More delay for Britain’s Hinkley nuclear project,as labour dispute worsens

Guardian 21st Sept 2017, The UK’s first new nuclear power plant for 20 years could be delayed
again, after trade unions for construction staff working on the £20bn
Hinkley Point C project announced a ballot for strike action in a dispute
over pay. More than 95% of members balloted by GMB and Unite rejected a pay
increase offered by the French energy company EDF and its contractor Bylor
after months of discussions. Any extension of the labour dispute risks
further time and cost overruns for Europe’s largest construction project,
which is already behind schedule and over budget.
