GMB members to take further action after rejecting 1.5% pay offer
The GMB members employed by Mitie will take action from 2.45am on Saturday until midnight, and again from 2.45am until 1pm on Sunday.
They voted by 87%, in a turnout of 80%, to strike in support of their claim for a 3% pay rise. The members have rejected the 1.5% offer from the company. The company has refused to attend talks at ACAS.
GMB organiser Gary Pearce said: “GMB remains available for talks with Mitie at anytime and anywhere at a moment’s notice. We remain in contact with ACAS which has been trying to get Mitie to meet them about resolving the dispute.
“GMB members involved in the dispute remain determined to get a pay rise irrespective of how long it takes Mitie to get to the table and sort this out.”
