Nearly 200 lorry drivers in Doncaster, striking over planned job cuts, say they'll now end the industrial action if they're offered a better redundancy package.
The workers blocked the gates of Tesco's distribution centre today in their long running dispute with haulage giant Eddie Stobart.
The row broke out in August after Tesco's decision to contract out delivery work. The strikers claim they've been offered new jobs across the country and on worse pay and conditions.
Lorry drivers working at a distribution centre in South Yorkshire are holding a demonstration in Doncaster in a bid to save 183 jobs.
They are involved in a dispute with their employer Eddie Stobart Ltd over plans to cut jobs and started continuous strike action on Thursday.
They will start the demonstration at the picket line outside a Tesco distribution centre, and then march into the centre of Doncaster.
Lorry drivers working at a distribution centre in South Yorkshire have gone on indefinite strike today in a bid to save 183 jobs.
Drivers staged a picket outside the distribution centre near Doncaster in a long-running dispute with haulage giant Eddie Stobart over plans to cut the jobs.
Eddie Stobart and Tesco also say they are confident that the strike will have no impact on deliveries to Tesco stores in the run up to Christmas.
Eddie Stobart, the new employer of Tesco drivers in Doncaster, have been accused of 'walking away' from negotiations by union Unite.
The drivers, at the supermarket's distribution centre, are now gearing up for a 72-hour strike next week. Unite says 180 drivers will be striking for three days - from Wednesday to Friday. There will be disruption to Tesco deliveries across the region.
Union leaders today rejected an offer put forward by trucking giants Eddie Stobart aimed at settling the Tesco drivers' dispute in South Yorkshire.
The offer was described as "very disappointing" after talks between Unite and Stobart ended in stalemate.
About 180 drivers at Tesco's site in Doncaster took two days of strike action last week over fears for their jobs. Union leaders have refused to rule out further industrial action. No one at Stobarts was available for comment. We have spoken to Harriet Eisner from Unite.
