Unite members at New Holland agree new offer

New Holland tractorUnite members at Case New Holland Tractor Ltd in Basildon have suspended strike action after accepting an improved pay offer.


They have agreed a new deal that gives them 2% cent for 2015 and 2% cent for 2016. There is also an improvement in pay when tractor production is not taking place which means workers receiving 60% of their pay for 20 days a year, instead of the current five. Any days on top of that would attract 55% pay, up from 50%.

Unite regional officer Jo Jaques said: “The dispute was settled after the union and the company reached agreement on an improved deal which meant that the offer for 2016 increased from 1.5 per cent to two per cent.

“Unite is pleased that this dispute has been settled. It is a tribute to the solidarity that our members have shown during three days of previous strike action.

“We want to continue to have a constructive relationship with the management going forward.”
