GMB Trade Union - Goodfish staff to strike over pay snub at St Asaph

Goodfish plc is facing strike action after GMB and Unite unions members voted to take Industrial action following the company's decision to walk away from pay talks.

Hardworking staff were looking for a small pay increase after accepting last year’s pay freeze due to the economic uncertainty thrown up by the covid pandemic.

However, despite the global uplift Goodfish have claimed there is no money for a pay rise this year, whilst at the same time advertising for new staff and offering a bonus scheme.

The first date of Strike action is scheduled for Wednesday 13 October.

GMB have urged the company to get back round the table and give members a ‘fair reward’ after taking the hit during the pandemic.

Alyn Thomas GMB Regional Organiser said:

“The fact of the matter is that the cost of living is going up, and our members just can’t afford not to have a pay increase.

“We were told that the company had no money for a pay rise, but then they look to take on more supervisors and offer a bonus scheme? It just doesn’t add up.

“Members took the hit for the company during the pandemic, now trade is picking up it’s the companies turn to give members a fair reward for their efforts.

“Goodfish need to get back round the table and give their staff the fair pay rise they deserve.”
