Ed Leach – Usdaw Area Organiser says:
“We are pleased to have come to a resolution, after the company finally moved on the issue and reinstated the 27.5% shift pay premium. It is disappointing that we had to resort to a 24-hour stoppage and I thank our members for standing strong against a significant threat to their pay.”
