UCATT members accept improved pay offer to end HTC crane dispute

UCATT crane drivers employed by HTC Plant have agreed a new pay offer to end their industrial dispute.

Having agreed the offer, the one-day strike scheduled for today (21 November) has been called off.

The three-year deal is worth over 14% on basic rates.

The agreement also means 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.

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.”
