Kier May GurneyLast-ditch talks are today being held in North Somerset in a bid to avoid strike action by council recycling workers employed by Kier May Gurney.

The GMB workers, who  voted 93.5% to strike over pay, want a pay rise but the company is refusing to say what its total pay bill is. The union has begun proceedings at the Central Arbitration Committee (CAC) to secure this information.

GMB regional officer Adie Baker said: “We have has negotiated in good faith and made it quite clear that if Kier May Gurney is serious about avoiding strike action, it must come back to the table today with a significantly improved offer.

“Failing a satisfactory offer that we can put to its members for their consideration, we will arrange a shop stewards’ meeting to decide on the dates and form of industrial action that will definitely include strike action.”
