JJB workers' pay dispute settled

Staff at sports retailer JJB have accepted a new pay offer, calling off further strike action.

The GMB said its members at the firm's warehouse in Wigan, Greater Manchester, backed the deal to raise hourly rates to 6 from the current 5.20 or 5.50.

Staff have walked out several times in the past few months in a dispute over pay and conditions.

Strikes planned for Wednesday and Thursday, an overtime ban and work to rule, have now been called off.

GMB official Graham Coxon said: "This has been a great victory for the will and fortitude of GMB members at JJB Sports, who have been on the minimum wage for far too long."
