Severe disruption expected as 67% vote for 24-hour strikes across four distribution centres
Argos' Basildon, Bridgwater, Heywood and Magna Park distribution centres will see 'severe' disruption after workers voted in favour of one-day strikes.
Staff believe that a four per cent pay rise is insufficient to address the increasing price of food, oil, gas bills.
Unite National Secretary, Jennie Formby, said: "Argos now faces severe disruption to their customer distribution service.
"This is a hugely profitable company and all our members are asking for is a fair share of the wealth they've worked so hard to create."
Unite say that Argos distribution workers are paid between £17,000 and £22,000 annually.
Reports have also highlighted that Terry Duddy, the companies' chief executive, received a 58% pay rise to around £1.7m.
Details and dates of the action will be announced next week, and are expected to take the form of a number of one-day strikes building up to a four-day stoppage.
Even though not all Argos stores will be affected, it is believed the retailer is currently working on contingency plans to limit the resultant damage from the strikes.
