Asda strike off

Issue No. 1997

The GMB union has called off a strike ballot of depot workers at Asda.

The decision followed a meeting between Asda chief executive Andy Bond and acting general secretary of the GMB, Paul Kenny.

Asda and the GMB claimed the deal would give recognition across all distribution sites and introduce local collective bargaining. However, the issues of the unpaid bonuses and outstanding pay and conditions have not yet been resolved and instead have been left to further talks.
