ARGOS DELIVERY drivers have voted to withdraw a threat to go on strike over the festive holiday season.
Courier staff at the company’s main distribution centre voted to take industrial action on the three days leading up to Christmas Day over a £700 row over pay and holiday entitlements.
The drivers work for Wincanton, a logistics company sub-contracted by Argos to make deliveries from its main distribution centre in Staffordshire.
Unite regional officer Rick Coyle said:
I would like to thank our members for the solidarity they have shown during this dispute and we look forward to a positive relationship with the management at Wincanton going forward.
A spokesman for Wincanton said: “All industrial action has now been suspended pending a ballot on the terms of the agreement among Unite members and at this important time of year, the business of Argos will be unaffected.”
