GMB Scotland in Falcon Foodservice: Industrial Action Update

GMB has today (Thursday 12 September) submitted formal notice of industrial action to your employer following our decisive ballot result.

We can now confirm that industrial action will take place as follows:

  • Strike action from 06.00 hours Thursday 26 September until 22.00 hours Monday 30 September 2019.
  • Overtime ban from 00.01 hours Tuesday 1 October until 00.01 hours Tuesday 29 October 2019.

We have also invited your employer to return to talks either directly or through the services of ACAS. We hope they will take the opportunity to do so as soon as possible.

A 2% increase on the basic rate of pay is a real-terms pay cut. It doesn’t meet the cost of living for you and your families. It’s not credible and your employer must do better.

We will update you on developments as soon as they happen but in the meantime, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me at barry.fletcher@gmb.org.uk or call our Glasgow office on 0141 332 8641 (Quote: “Falcon” during office hours).
