Drivers at Eddie Stobart’s Doncaster DC have voted for strike action, in response to the operator’s announcement last week that it would be making them redundant. Unite says more than 150 drivers, from a total of 183, voted for strike action at the site that was previously part of Tesco’s distribution network. Harriet Eisner, Unite regional office, said: “Unite is still in talks with Eddie Stobart, but the management remains intransigent that it wants to get rid of the drivers. […]
Union Unite has said that it is looking to work in a “positive and constructive manner” with the management at AM Widdowson & Son after it emerged that a recovery plan at the Leicester haulier would involve 50 redundancies.
Imminent strike action at Menzies Distribution has been suspended after the company made an improved pay offer, Unite said today.
TNT Express UK & Ireland has confirmed around 50% of TNT Fashion Group UK’s dedicated network of distribution sites will be integrated into existing TNT Express sites as part of the DC rationalisation announced in January.
