Employees at UK biscuit maker Tunnock’s could strike tomorrow (23 September) in a dispute over pay.

Union members at Tunnock’s site in Uddingston in Lanarkshire are meeting today to decide whether to stage a 24-hour walkout tomorrow.

UK union Unite said workers were “unhappy” at “misleading” claims from Tunnock’s that staff have rejected a pay offer. The union claims no offer has been made.

Unite regional officer Tony Devlin said: “Our members are furious at their management’s audacity to put out false and misleading information regarding any offers made. No formal offers were made.

“We have continually said that if a sensible offer with no conditions is made, then we shall put that to our members for them to decide. However, the company is using dirty tricks and is misleading our members. Our members are determined to get a fair and improved pay offer.”

Officials at Tunnock’s could not be reached for immediate comment.
