Usdaw members overwhelmingly accept a much improved pay offer in nine Tesco distribution centres

Date: 22 December 2021 Two ballots of over 5,000 Usdaw members closed today, with nearly 90% accepting the much improved pay offer from Tesco. Usdaw recommended support for the new deal of 5.5% backdated to July and a further 0.5% from the end of February next year.
The two ballots involved drivers and warehouse workers at nine Tesco distribution centres in: Daventry Clothing, Goole, Hinckley, Lichfield, Livingston, Magor (both trunk and main sites), Peterborough and Southampton.
 
Joanne McGuinness - Usdaw National Officer says: “Having secured by negotiation this improved offer, following the threat of strike action, we are pleased that our members have overwhelmingly supported it.
 
“Retail distribution drivers and warehouse staff are key workers who delivered essential services throughout the pandemic. They deserve this pay rise and it is through our members’ strength and solidarity that we’ve been able to achieve it.”
