GMB TO BALLOT MEMBERS EMPLOYED BY DHL IN BANBURY FOR INDUSTRIAL ACTION IN PAY DISPUTE 

It is disappointing that DHL has allowed a situation to arise where members feel there only course of action is to take some form of industrial action says GMB

GMB Birmingham Region is to ballot over 200 members employed by DHL at three warehouses at the Cherwell Campus in Banbury for industrial action in a pay dispute

The ballot opens on Friday 23rd October and will close on 6th November.

David Day, GMB Organiser, said “The majority of our members rejected a 2.5% pay offer and I conveyed this rejection to the company.

I am disappointed that DHL has allowed a situation to arise where GMB members feel there only course of action is to take some form of industrial action.

GMB is hoping that action can be avoided and a resolution can be found, but it is the members who work for DHL in Banbury who will decide what happens next.

We are hoping to resume talks with DHL to come to some sort of agreement. However industrial action is the last resort so we are asking the company to reopen talks to improve the offer".

End
