Food store Iceland’s depot staff plan series of strikes in pay dispute

Supplies to branches of frozen food chain Iceland could be hit over Christmas by a strike over pay, a union has said.

Members of the Transport and General Workers’ Union (T&G) at the firm’s north London depot have rejected a 2.4% pay rise, and are set to walk out in a series of one and two-day strikes starting on 8 December.

While the 365 workers are employed by logistics firm DHL Exel, the T&G union said it also blamed Iceland for the dispute.

The T&G said that any pay increases by DHL at the depot first have to be authorised by Iceland.

The Enfield site has about 115 drivers and 250 warehouse operatives. It delivers to about 180 Iceland stores in London and across the South East and East Anglia.
