Usdaw names Scotbeef strike dates

Usdaw members working at Scotbeef are to strike for 24 hours on December 19 after rejecting a 1.7% pay offer.

Scotbeef is one of UK’s largest privately owned fresh meat companies, producing meat products for the UK and export retail market. Their main customers are: Aldi, Lidl, the Macdonald Hotel Group and Marks & Spencer. The industrial action will affect Scotbeef workplaces in East Kilbride and Queenslie in Glasgow.

Usdaw divisional officer Stewart Forrest said: “Usdaw has engaged positively with Scotbeef during the 2017 pay review, but the company has so far failed to make an offer acceptable to our members. This breakdown in negotiations has forced Usdaw members to take industrial action.

“It is deeply regrettable that the company has pushed our members to this point and we urge them to bring forward an offer in line with our members’ expectations.”
