Following a ballot of GMB members employed by NTL (Nottingham Trams Limited), a last minute pay offer issued by company top brass has been overwhelmingly rejected by Nottingham’s tram workers.

GMB members will now plan further action.

A GMB spokesperson said:

“The latest offer was a last-minute job, hastily put together by the company after months of missed opportunities to resolve this.

The company have had months to agree an offer which meets the modest aspirations of Nottingham tram workers; a pay rise in line with inflation that sets Nottingham tram workers on track to have pay parity with tram workers in other parts of the country. GMB members presented a compromise position, which the company have refused to consider.

The decision to delay strike action was an act of good faith on the part of GMB members as they reviewed the offer, however it’s clear NTL have again fallen short and Nottingham’s tram workers will be forced to take action to win pay justice.

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”.
