Asda strike action threat moves closer

The Asda supermarket chain is facing the threat of strike action by distribution staff after they turned down a new pay deal.

In a statement, the GMB union said almost 70% of 8,000 GMB members polled voted against the below inflation pay offer and nearly 80% of the LGV drivers and warehouse and clerical workers said they were ready to take industrial action over pay.

GMB will now meet with members to discuss next steps.

Nadine Houghton, GMB national officer, said: “The UK is facing the worst cost of living crisis for a generation. Inflation is rampant and energy prices are out of control. Yet Asda workers are being taken for mugs with below inflation pay offer that basically means a real terms pay cut. They’re not going to take it lying down – it’s now up to Asda bosses to come back with a reasonable offer and avert the threat of industrial action.”
