Unions cautiously welcome talks with Unilever
Responding to the news that Unilever management has agreed to engage in talks with conciliation service ACAS, the national officers of the joint trade unions - Unite, Usdaw and GMB - make the following statement:
"We welcome the fact that Unilever has at last recognised its responsibility to talk to us about a possible resolution to the dispute.
"We hope the agreement to talk through ACAS is a genuine indication of a willingness to engage meaningfully in an effort to find a solution.
"However, it is very early days and the dispute will continue until proposals have been put forward that are acceptable to our members."
