An end to the pay dispute at UK biscuit maker Tunnock’s looks closer today (8 October) after union officials decided to back the company’s latest pay offer.

The Unite union said Tunnock’s had made an “improved” pay offer following “constructive” talks at employment dispute body ACAS.

The union said it would “strongly recommend” the offer when the Tunnock’s workforce meets on Monday.

Unite regional officer Derek Ormston said: “The talks at ACAS have been very constructive. I’m pleased that Tunnock’s has finally tabled an offer which we can strongly recommend to our members.”

Officials at Tunnock’s could not be reached for comment as just-food went to press.
