DONCASTER’S Tesco drivers will go back out on strike after rejecting the latest ‘completely unsatisfactory’ offer in a long-running dispute.

The 180 lorry drivers, who face being unemployed by Christmas, have said they feel ‘boxed into a corner’ by their new employer Eddie Stobart Ltd (ESL) following their transfer from Tesco in August.

However, ESL have hit back saying the redundancy package was ‘substantial’ and that drivers should feel ‘let down’ by its union representation Unite.
