Greggs workers Convincingly Agree Deal For More Bread on The Table
The Bakers Food and Allied Workers Union (BFAWU) have announced that their members in Greggs have convincingly accepted the pay offer put to them by the company. The deal was reached after lengthy negotiations between the union and company.
The deal gives Greggs workers their biggest pay increase in 12 years and is well above the current RPI levels. In the last 2 years the Bakers Union has negotiated wage increases of over 15% with Greggs, ensuring that every Greggs worker, across the country, has seen their basic pay rise in those 2 years.
Sarah Woolley, General Secretary of the BFAWU said:
“We are delighted that our members have accepted this offer. I am incredibly proud of the work our union did to negotiate this above inflation pay rise and very proud that in these past couple of years our negotiators have helped put so much more money in the pockets of our members and every single Greggs worker across the UK during such a challenging economic period.
This agreement really shows that unionised workers standing together, rise together and is a great example of what can be achieved if workers unite and work together. We as a union are proud to have delivered such a good deal for our members”. Ends
This deal will benefit all Greggs staff whether they are members of the BFAWU or not. If you work for Greggs and are not in the BFAWU you can join here https://join.bfawu.org/
