Industrial Relations At Warburtons

EDM number 788 in 2017-19, proposed by Ian Mearns on 15/01/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Companies and Industrial relations.

That this House welcomes the agreement on pay, terms and conditions between Warbutons and employee members of the Bakers, Food and Allied Workers Union; notes that the deal involves a substantial increase in the basic hourly rate for most workers, more stable shift patterns to allow workers greater ability to manage their lives and increased learning opportunities; commends both parties on the productive spirit in which negotiations were held; believes this example demonstrates that responsible employers recognise the benefit of investing in the workforce, preserving high product standards and avoiding a race to the bottom in pay and conditions; and therefore calls on other employers in the food manufacturing sector to recognise trade unions and negotiate in a similarly constructive manner to mutual advantage of the business and the workers.

This motion has been signed by a total of 19 MPs.
