Workers almost unanimously accepted the offer, which amounts to a 7% pay rise plus a bonus scheme to be offered to more staff and further uplifts for those on the lowest pay rates.

‘GMB is extremely proud of our members who have stood firm during almost two weeks of strike action,’ said GMB Organiser Nicky Nixon.

‘We were pleased to be able to negotiate an improved offer which has been almost unanimously accepted by the members.’

Wiltshire refuse workers have been on strike for almost two weeks in a walkout affecting almost 250,000 homes.
