Action threat brings gain at GKN

Issue No. 2208

More than 500 workers at vehicle parts maker GKN Sankey in Telford, Shropshire, have called off a planned strike after winning concessions over pay.

About 350 workers out of 500 in the Unite and GMB unions voted to accept the new deal – a 2.5 percent pay rise, backdated to January.

The company had originally offered 2 percent. GKN workers had also held an overtime ban since last week.
