Keep Leicester clean, back the Biffa workers!

GMB members at Biffa in Leicester have again voted overwhelming to reject a pay deal from the company.

Members at the company have long been campaigning for a living wage, reflecting the dedication and hard work of staff at the company.

The latest pay offer from the company fell well short of this, with key workers again refused the pay deal they deserve.

HGV drivers being offered a market supplement, which could be withdrawn at any time, is a sticking plaster solution and not the answer of a national HGV drivers' shortage.

Jim Clarke, GMB Regional Organiser, said:

“Key workers can't pay their bills with claps and no key worker should be earning less than the real living wage of £9.50 in 2021.

These workers keep Leicester clean and worked day after day throughout the Covid-19 Pandemic. Our members are calling on Biffa to do the right thing and come back to the table with an offer that reflects the work these GMB members do”.
