Over 100 of Unite members employed by GXO Logistics are to strike for 15 days, in a dispute over what the union describes as ”alarmingly low pay”.

GXO warehouse workers and delivery drivers will take part in industrial action from Monday 20 May until Friday 7 June at the Feltham site in the London borough of Hounslow.

The strike centres around pay scales with warehouse workers taking home just over £12 an hour and delivery drivers also paid below market rates, according to Unite.

The union said GXO has failed to make any form of offer to its workers, paying them below the London living wage, despite delivering a revenue of over £7bn last year.

The workers transport goods for brands such as Costa Coffee and Whitbread. Unite is warning that provisions, such as food and drink, will be in short supply while workers are taking industrial action.

Unite general secretary, Sharon Graham, said: “It’s disgraceful that a multi-billion-pound company is paying its workers below the living wage. This is a company that can fully afford to pay its workers fairly and decently but has chosen not to out of sheer greed.

“Unite always puts the jobs, pay and conditions of its members first and the workers at GXO in Feltham will receive the union’s unyielding support.”

Lui D’Cunha, Unite regional officer, added: “Our members are an integral part of the operation at GXO Logistics. Any disruption caused because of these strikes sits entirely with management at the company.

“GXO has had every opportunity to make a fair pay offer but has declined to do so.”

GXO refuted Unite claims that the company had not made a pay offer and insisted any strike action will not impact on deliveries. 

A GXO spokesperson said: ”We are currently in process with ACAS and Unite and have already made an enhanced offer as part of these negotiations.

”We are disappointed that this offer has not been communicated to our colleagues and we will continue to work with ACAS and Unite to find a resolution but are confident we can mitigate the impact of any industrial action.”
