About 600 GMB union members at Moy Park's chicken processing plant at Anwick, Lincolnshire have won a 9% pay rise after the firm was faced with a strike and employment tribunals over proposed changes in work practices.

The deal - a pay rise and a fixed weekly fee - covers a change from five- to six-day working, said the GMB's regional organiser Andy Fletcher. The site also has about 300 agency workers, he said.

Before the settlement GMB members voted 86% in favour of industrial action and the GMB threatened employment tribunals that Fletcher said could have cost Moy Park up to £2M.
