Workers to get compensation over stopped pay

More than 400 workers at a food factory in Hull will receive compensation after winning an employment tribunal over pay cuts.Unite union said that Greencore bosses failed to restore overtime and enhanced holiday pay after staff agreed to suspend them to help out the firm.

The amount of compensation which will be payed out is not yet known but its thought to be in the region of £1.2m between the effected workers.

A spokesperson from the union said, “It’s great news that the workers eventually got the justice they deserved.”

“However, this isn’t the end of the matter and our members are now discussing next steps in the union campaign to restore fairness to the contracts of employment that were unilaterally and unfairly changed by Greencore after Unite pledged to mount this legal challenge.”

Greencore, which supplies food to leading supermarkets said, “acknowledges the recent decision in the tribunal case.”
