GMB union has today announced that a pay deal has been struck with NTL (Nottingham Trams Limited), following weeks of campaigning and industrial action by Nottingham’s hard working tram staff.

The agreed deal was put to members in a ballot, in which GMB members voted to accept the deal.

This means planned industrial action in December 2021 has been suspended.

 

A GMB spokesperson said:

“This is a very welcome outcome to weeks of campaigning and hard work by Nottingham tram workers and GMB activists.

From day one GMB members have been clear; any pay offer must meet the modest aspirations of Nottingham tram workers, be in line with inflation that set Nottingham tram workers on track to have pay parity with tram workers in other parts of the country.

The offer presented to our members means they are able to work confident in knowing their wages will cover soaring inflation hitting working people. There is still more to be done and GMB will continue to campaign for proper reward and recognition for Nottingham’s tram workers.

Nottingham’s tram workers are the life blood of the city, keeping businesses, families and working people moving. It’s time they got the reward and recognition they deserve.  Public support from Nottingham residents has been overwhelming and we would like to put on record our thanks to them on behalf of our members”.
