Strikes at Trelleborg’s Leicester factory have ended after the workers accepted an improved pay deal. 

More than 100 workers at the industrial anti-vibration solution firm will receive an eight per cent pay rise backdated to April 2023. The workers will also receive a one-off £750 payment.

The two-year pay deal will see workers receive a three per cent rise from April 2024, unless CPIH inflation is above five per cent, in which case pay negotiations will be reopened. 

Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said: “By standing together with their union, Trelleborg’s workforce achieved a much-improved pay deal. As this result shows, Unite’s absolute focus on improving jobs, pay and conditions is paying dividends for our members.”

All out strike action, which began on 11 July, has now been cancelled, with work resuming as normal.

Unite regional officer Lakhy Mahal said: “Workers looking to improve their wages and working lives should join Unite and organise their colleagues to join the union as well.”
