WILKO DC1 AND DC2 GMB BALLOT RESULT
FAO GMB MEMBERS IN WILKO DC1 AND DC2
Following the talks between Wilko and the GMB over the DC modernisation and the proposed changes to members’ terms and conditions of employment and the ballot of members at both DCs, the result of the GMB ballot is a 56% vote in favour of accepting the final offer. Both DC1 and DC2 voted to accept.
The GMB will now sign the new agreement with Wilko.
Members will be receiving their buyout this month after signing your new contract and the new terms will come into effect in February.
Please ensure you sign your new contract ASAP to ensure you receive your payment.
The GMB will continue to support those members on flexible hours to ensure wherever possible they can continue to work around their family commitments.
The result of this ballot ensures that the £66 million investment by Wilko in the DCs will go ahead which also ensure long term employment at Wilko in both Yorkshire and South Wales.
Thank you to all GMB members for voting and having your voice heard and also thank you to all the GMB reps and Convenors, these negotiations have been extremely difficult at times and your GMB reps have achieved the best possible offer and have been a credit to you all.
