Strikes at Cheshire glass manufacturing and logistics company ENCIRC Ltd over working patterns and contracts of employment have been postponed following an offer from the company, Unite said today (Thursday 6 May).

Unite, the UK’s leading union, said a strike scheduled to go ahead today has been cancelled while the offer is put to members.

The union, which more than 170 members at ENCIRC, said it is recommending a vote in favour of the offer.

The dispute involves workers in ENCIRC’s glass manufacturing section, who believe that they are being treated in a less favourable manner compared to the company’s other departments.

Unite regional officer Andrew Johnson said: “After a meeting yesterday with ENCIRC’s management team, the company has put forward an offer that Unite is recommending our members accept.

“A strike scheduled for today has been postponed, while our members are balloted on the proposed deal.”
