Britain's GMB union announces second 5 day strike at Centrica's British gas

LONDON, Jan 12 (Reuters) - Britain’s GMB trade union said on Tuesday that its members at Centrica’s British Gas will start a second five-day strike in protest over proposed changes to work conditions.

GMB said the workers would strike on Jan. 20, Jan. 22, Jan. 25 and Feb. 1 over what it called plans to “fire and rehire” and cuts to workers’ pay and terms.

Workers carried out a five day strike against the proposals at the beginning of January.
