The dispute came to an end – this is the agreed statement:
“Following productive and positive consultations between UVW and Templewood today, 2nd November 2017, we have reached an agreement which will settle this current industrial dispute to the satisfaction of all parties concerned.
It has been agreed that the Living Wage will be paid effective immediately to our members, and annual increases will also be made in the month following the Living Wage announcement in the first week of November of each year. Due to the terms of this agreement no further comments will be made in public about this matter.”
Thank you for all your support! Onwards and upwards!
