Around 1,800 GMB members at two Wilko distribution centres – in Magor, Wales and Worksop, Nottinghamshire – were due to walk out on 21 and 22 October over “forced” weekend working.
The strikes have now been called off after 63% of members voted to accept the improved weekend rota pattern offered by Wilko bosses after “intense” two day talks last week.
Gary Carter, GMB National Officer, said: “Planned Wilko strike action for October 21 and 22 have been called off following today’s ballot result. “The improved weekend rota pattern offers a better work life balance for staff.
“GMB would like to thank members and reps who have stood shoulder to shoulder and showed what we can achieve by standing together.”
