A strike among 1,100 G4S cash workers has been called off after the company offered an improved deal.  

Workers had voted for industrial action after the company offered a pay increase of just 2.5% - well below inflation

The strike could have resulted in ATM’s running out of cash and airports being left without foreign currency. 

But workers will now vote on whether to accept G4S’s improved offer of a 7.5% pay rise, with 3.5% backdated to July. 

Nadine Houghton, GMB National Officer said: 

“Our members working for G4S cash flexed their industrial muscle and have been offered a real terms pay rise they richly deserve. 

“They’ve put their lives on the line making sure ATM’s and bureau de changes across the UK were kept stocked during the pandemic. 

“It’s a difficult, dangerous job which they carried out throughout covid. 

“It’s only right they have a pay rise that actually means more money in their pocket - as well as overtime and night payments that reflect the work they do.”
