Drivers at a Tesco depot in Yorkshire voted today to take strike.
As reported in the Morning Star, more than 150 drivers at the distribution depot in Doncaster have been told their jobs are being transferred to transport firm Eddie Stobart Ltd (ESL).
But on September 5 they were given 90 days' notice by Stobart, with no guarantees that there will be jobs for them when the notice is up.
The drivers, who are Unite members, have voted by over 90 per cent for strike action.
Unite regional officer Harriet Eisner said the drivers will decide in the near future what action to take.
She said: "The full impact of ESL's decision is now sinking in that they won't have a job by Christmas.
"They are shocked, angry and devastated, as what they feared would occur when the transfer took place has happened so quickly and ruthlessly."
Unite is still in talks with ESL but the management remains "intransigent that it wants to get rid of the drivers," she added.
Ms Eisner called on the Doncaster community to get behind the campaign to save the drivers' jobs.
