Strikes at Nottingham’s Riverside Bakery have been postponed to allow workers to vote on an improved pay offer tabled by the company, Unite, the UK’s leading union, said today (Wednesday 30 March).

Around 170 workers at the factory, who are members of Unite, were due to go on continuous all-out all strike from today.

If the offer is rejected by the workers strike action will begin at a later date. 

Riverside Bakery produces quiches, flans and savoury tarts sold by major retailers including Tesco, ASDA, Sainsbury’s, Aldi and Marks and Spencer.  

Unite regional officer Cheryl Pidgeon said: “Unite welcomes this offer as a step in the right direction to ending this dispute. Our members will now decide if it meets their expectations.”
