Wincanton drivers to vote on improved offer

Drivers, warehouse and clerical staff at the Wincanton hauliers depots in Doncaster and Manchester are to vote on a new pay offer.

The 1,500 workers, who have previously voted to take strike action in support of their claim for a pay increase, will be briefed about the new offer by the T&G union and a workplace ballot will take place next week.

The union is strongly recommending that they accept the deal.

The revised offer was negitiated at lengthy talks between Wincanton and top national transport officers from the T&G. No details will be published until the ballot is over.

“Our people do a very responsible job for Wincanton and we believe this new offer recognises their contribution,” said Ron Webb, T&G national secretary for transport.

The ballot will conclude at lunchtime on 17 December, with the result expected later the same day.

The three depots concerned are major distribution centres for Tesco supermarkets across the north of England.
