Almost 2,000 dock workers at Felixstowe, Britains biggest container ship port, will strike for eight days later this month after failing to reach a deal on pay.

Workers will strike from Aug. 21 to 29, the Unite union said in a statement Friday. Talks failed after the Felixstowe Dock and Railway Company, owned by a unit of

CK Hutchison Holdings Ltd., did not improve its offer of a 7% pay increase, the labor group said.
