GMB Union members at JCB have voted to accept temporary flexible working arrangements to save jobs amid the Coronavirus crisis. 

The ballot, conducted today at the Cabs Factory in Beamhurst, Staffordshire, was overseen by independent representatives and will be followed by further discussions between GMB senior representatives and JCB management. 

Stuart Harrison, GMB Organiser said: 

“Our members have saved more than 900 jobs by voting to accept the new flexible working proposal. 

“Now is when the hard work starts, we’ll be working with JCB to ensure this new agreement is implemented equally and fairly across all JCB sites. 

“Thanks to all GMB Members who took part and the senior reps who have been a credit to the union with their hard work and diligence.
