Win! Unite secures recognition and a 13% pay rise at DHL Aberdeen

Unite has secured union recognition and a 13% increase over two years at DHL Aberdeen.

Around 30 logistics drivers will benefit from a two-year pay deal of 8% this year on all rates of pay, and 5% in 2023.

The agreement also ensures that DHL Aberdeen will recognise Unite for purposes of collective bargaining and negotiation following an organising campaign which has seen trade union membership grow by a third since the beginning of the year.

Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said: “This is a massive win for DHL Aberdeen workers securing both a great pay deal in these tough times and the trade union recognition that will ensure we can keep delivering for members. This is a fantastic example of Unite winning in the workplace on jobs, wages and conditions for its members.”

Unite industrial officer Marc Jackson said: “We are delighted to have secured a significant pay increase for our members at DHL Aberdeen. We also have a recognition agreement with the company due to our organising and strength on site which will now mean that all terms and conditions of drivers will be negotiated going forward. It’s a massive win for our members and demonstrates the strength of being a member of Unite.”
