About 180 workers at the Sellafield nuclear reprocessing plant have ended a pay dispute with an outsourcing firm. Security guards, catering staff and cleaners employed by Mitie and who are members of the Unite Union have taken part in a number of walk outs. Mitie said it was not negotiating with Unite as the GMB was the only recognised union on the contract and its members had accepted a pay offer. However, Unite said its members have now backed the revised pay deal. The union said the rise of 55p an hour has now taken it up to the Living Wage Foundation’s real living wage of £9 per hour.
