Strike action by waste and recycling workers in Doncaster has been called off, after a pay deal was agreed with Sita UK.
Unite union members were due to carry out a continuous strike following two days of strike action last weekend by more than 100 workers in a dispute over pay. The union wanted a £1 per hour increase for waste collection workers in Doncaster to bring pay in line with workers in other areas.
Workers have now accepted a revised offer to link pay with the Retail Price Index rate of inflation over the next three years.
Nick Browning, logistics general manager for Sita UK, said: “We are pleased to have reached an agreement with UNITE and that strike action has been averted.
He added: “This year’s award will be backdated to April when inflation stood at 3.2%. UNITE agreed to recommend this revised offer to its members, who have now accepted the deal.”
Full waste and recycling collection services will resume today.
