Pay deal averts north Norfolk strike

A strike by collection workers employed by Kier Environmental in north Norfolk has been called off shortly before it was due to start.

Members of the GMB union had called for a strike from 24 October after rejecting the company’s latest pay offer but have now agreed a two-year deal.

The dispute began in July 2015.

Ivan Mercer, GMB regional organiser, said: “I am delighted that Kier was finally able to bring an offer to the table that we could recommend and our members were willing to accept.

“There are still a few industrial relations issues to iron out, but I am optimistic that these problems can be resolved.”

Keir’s workers had wanted pay parity with collection teams in King’s Lynn.
