Greencore have issued this statement over a tribunal judgement whereby employees in Hull won a claim for over a £1m against the company.
This is an ongoing dispute with the union regarding premium rates. Greencore acknowledges the recent decision in the tribunal case in this matter. However, it is very important to note that the case has not concluded and, in particular, no specific claim has been agreed or stipulated by the tribunal.
Further tribunal meetings are scheduled to take place over the next few months to bring the case to conclusion. Until that time, it is far too premature to discuss the Union claims.
We believe that the management has a good dialogue with our colleagues at the Hull facility and our priority continues to focus on securing the long-term sustainability of the site and employment for the area. "
