UPS parcel strike called off, as rep is reinstated

17 December 2013
Staff at UPS Parcels in central London have called off their strike on Friday (20 December), after it was agreed that the conciliation service Acas would broker talks in the New Year over unreasonable workloads and alleged bullying.

Talks between Unite, the country’s largest union, and the management yesterday (Monday 16 Monday) also saw the reinstatement of the sacked UPS steward.

Unite regional officer Onay Kasab said: “After the management agreed to reinstate our shop steward, who, in our view, was unfairly dismissed, Unite has called off Friday’s strike at UPS’ Camden depot.

“Both parties have agreed to go to Acas early in the New Year to resolve the ongoing dispute. The reinstatement of our steward is a victory for worker solidarity – and we will be going into the Acas talks in a positive frame of mind.
