Crane drivers have called off a planned strike tomorrow after they reached agreement on a new pay offer.
UCATT said its members had agreed a three-year pay deal worth over 14 per cent on basic rates.
It said: “The new agreement also means that the bonus rate has been consolidated into the basic rate and a further raft of expenses and allowances, which workers previously enjoyed, have been reinstated.”
Workers had held a one-day strike last month, and threatened two further one-day strikes, both of which have now been cancelled.
UCATT general secretary Steve Murphy said: “This is a victory for common sense. We welcome the agreement as it gives stability to both sides. Our members have certainty about pay and HTC have certainty over their future business costs. UCATT is now looking forward to a fruitful relationship with HTC.”
