£5 deal ends strike threat by ancillary workers The Herald

Carolyn Leckie, Unison branch secretary, said the deal was a major success for the trade unions and the rights of low-paid workers. "This has been an overwhelming victory for some of the lowest-paid workers in Scotland, the minnows have taken on the giant of a multinational corporation and won," she said.

"All our demands will have been met by April 2004, which is a sweeping victory for the union movement."

Tommy Sheridan, leader of the Scottish Socialist party, supported the strike action and welcomed the result.

He added: "These people do an essential job and are paid poverty wages. They had a moderate set of demands, and they fully deserved them to be met.
