    Employees working in maintenance and security departments at the Bank of England will start a three-day strike over salaries on Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — As part of the industrial action, the members of the largest UK trade union, Unite, who work at the bank will protest against the below-inflation pay imposed on them without negotiations with the union.

    The strike was initially scheduled for Monday, but was delayed to allow for talks via the conciliation service Acas.

    A protest will be held outside the Bank's headquarters in the City of London.
