12 Aug 2013

The proposed strike action at Ardagh Glass has been suspended to allow members to consider a new offer made by the employer. ” We feel duty bound to put to our members in an indicative ballot”, says GMB.


Strike action due to begin on 9th August 2013 at four Ardagh Glass sites at Doncaster, Irvine, Knottingley and Barnsley has been suspended to allow union members to consider a new offer tabled by the employer.


GMB Organiser Bob McNeill said, “After considerable negotiations and Acas conciliation a revised pay offer has been tabled by the company. As the company have tabled this revised offer we feel duty bound to put to our members in an indicative ballot. Strike action that was due to start today has been suspended until the ballot is concluded.”
