GMB members working for Serco at Sandwell refuse have voted to accept a pay offer after weeks of campaigning.

The pay offer represents a package of benefits, including significant pay rise, additional leave days and improvement to working conditions.

GMB has announced the strike dates planned for July and August will be postponed pending completion of the deal.


Justine Jones, GMB Midlands Organiser, said:

“This is a big win by GMB members at Sandwell refuse, after weeks of campaigning.

“These are Britain’s key workers, keeping communities up and down Sandwell safe and clean. It’s only right that Serco listen to their demands for pay justice.

“GMB is the union for everyone working in refuse and we’ll never let employers take the vital work they do for granted.”
