Doncaster drivers give Tesco & Stobarts a bloody nose and force a climbdown

From the National Shop Stewards Network website, www.shopstewards.net

Doncaster ex-Tesco drivers, outsourced to and then sacked by Eddie Stobarts, voted by 150-19 to accept an improved redundancy offer and end their strike.

This package, whilst still only 650 for each year's service, was 50% better than that drivers had been notified of only a day earlier in their redundancy letters.

This climbdown by Stobarts/Tescos was forced on them by the most effective picketing that I have seen for years, which for 50 hours, round the clock, had lorries parked up unable to move, as many as 120 wagons at one point...
