Peel Ports, Unite reach agreed offer, strikes at port of Liverpool come to an end

Peel Ports, the operator of the Port of Liverpool, and Unite, the British trade union, seem to have come to an agreement regarding the pay increase that port workers have demanded in the latest months.

Although information about the deal between the two parties have not been disclosed, the strike actions, which have caused severe operation difficulties in the supply chain of the United Kingdom, are expected to come to an end.

"Peel Ports Group, which operates the Port of Liverpool’s container terminals alongside Terminal Investments Limited (TIL), is pleased to announce that an agreed proposal has been reached with Unite the Union that will be fully recommended to its members," said a Peel Ports statement.

UK's major port operating company noted that Unite will have a vote with the container operators later this week to formally accept the offer.

On this basis, Peel Ports’ chief operating officer, David Huck, and Unite the Unions’ National Officer for Transport, Bobby Morton, confirmed that the strike planned for 14 November will be postponed, according to the statement.
