Biscuit workers take pay offer

Issue No. 2268

Workers at Burton’s Foods in Blackpool have accepted a 6 percent pay offer after talks.

The 400 BFAWU bakers’ union members, who make Jammie Dodgers and Wagon Wheels, voted to strike in July against a below-inflation pay offer.

The workers rejected the 6 percent offer—3 percent a year over two years—on 13 August, despite the union recommending it.

But they have now accepted the deal after a reballot.
