DHL JCB Delivery Strike Called Off After GMB Members Accept Revised Pay Offer

Listen to this article

JCB delivery drivers have called off a strike after GMB members accepted a pay rise of almost 10 per cent.

Dozens of members of the GMB union in the United Kingdom who are employed by delivery giant DHL were due to walk out yesterday and today [23 and 24 May] but bosses made a last minute offer of 9.5 per cent plus a £750 bonus.

GMB members voted on the offer yesterday and a majority of 80 per cent accepted the deal.

Stuart Harrison, GMB Organiser, says: “GMB members working for DHL for JCB should be rightly proud of themselves.

“They’ve been under attack for four years – faced changes to their contracts and a whopping pay cut.


“Now they’re walking away with a big pay rise, a bonus and their heads held high.

‘The way they’ve stuck together shows what can be done in workplaces with the basic trade union values of challenging fat cat employers to pay GMB members what they deserve.“
