It was only due to a stand-off and the determination of our members that we were able to secure an acceptable deal
GMB members employed by Tata Steel at locations across the UK have voted to accept a new pay deal at Tata Steel.
The deal will see all pay rates increase by 3.75% backdated from 1st April 2013. There are two elements to the deal including consolidation of bonus payments into pay rates and new money of 1.75%.
The deal covers up to 19,000 employees at locations across the UK including Hartlepool, Port Talbot, Scunthorpe, Rotherham, Sheffield,Shotton and Llanwern.
Dave Hulse, GMB National Secretary for manufacturing, said “I am pleased to say that the consultation with GMB members at Tata Steel on the pay offer for 2013 has concluded and that the members have voted to accept the deal.
We have been disappointed at the company’s attitude over this year’s pay claim which gave rise to prolonged negotiations. It was only due to a stand-off and the determination of our members that we were able to secure an acceptable deal”
