A strike threat at British Sugar's factories has been averted after 500 workers accepted an improved pay deal. The Unite union said its members at British Sugar's factories in Norfolk, Suffolk and Nottinghamshire had voted to accept a 3.5pc pay increase. A previous offer of 2pc was overwhelmingly rejected in a consultative ballot of technicians, engineers and supply chain operatives. That prompted a threat of strike action at the firm's four factories in Cantley, near Acle, Wissington in west Norfolk, Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk, and Newark in Nottinghamshire. But the union said the proposed strike ballot has now been cancelled after the pay dispute was resolved.Click here to connect to the source of this storyClick here for more News and Views
