WORKERS AT the food preparation firm Uniq, at Annan and Finnarts Bay in the west of Scotland, have won significant gains.
The 1,000 workers, in the TGWU union, have won a 5 percent pay rise and secured a minimum wage of £5 an hour, an increase of 9 percent for some.
The workers had voted heavily for strike action, which was planned to start on Thursday of last week.
This has been suspended pending a ballot of members on the new offer. Uniq is one of the largest private sector employers in the area.
