Union accepts 2.1% pay increase at Morrison’s

Unite has balloted its members at the Morrison's Store, following a Union recommended offer, after a long day of negotiations.

The offer put to our members consisted of a 2.1% consolidated pay increase. A £200 one-off payment for those employees moving from weekly pay to four weekly pay, in addition those employees affected by this change, could also take advantage of a soft loan, at the time the change will take place. 87.5% voted in favour. 

Christian Duo of Unite said, "We are extremely pleased with the ballot turn-out and I have to congratulate our hard working negotiating committee. Management intentions has been for the last two years to move the Gibraltar Store closer to the Pay and Conditions applicable to UK colleagues and therefore we have seen the introduction of the share save scheme, the uplift of pay in a particular department but also the capping of pay in another.

"I honestly believe we have got the best possible deal for our members, including compensation for those moving from weekly pay to four weekly pay."

All these measures come in the backdrop of a Store investment (refurbishment) of over six million pounds, which gives us the confidence and shows Morrison's commitment to Gibraltar, regardless of the uncertainty that Brexit brings.
