GMB Trade Union - Strike ends at Wolverhampton incinerator

Inflation busting pay rise agreed to end dispute.

GMB members at the Energy from Waste site in Wolverhampton have called off any further strike action after coming to a pay agreement with the new management, North Midlands Operations Limited.

The new deal will mean salaries increase by 13.8% as well as one-off payments of up to £4,000.

This follows 3 days of strike action last month which saw the incinerator taken off line.

Tom Warnett, GMB Regional Organiser, said:

“This pay deal represents a total victory and vindication for our members. After working constructively with the new management they have now come to a fair agreement on pay which was unanimously accepted.

“Our members look forward to a constructive future relationship as they go about their work providing a vital public service.”
