About 500 Unite the Union members who work at Diageo operations across Scotland have accepted a revised pay offer by the drink giant.
Their acceptance of the two-year pay deal ends a long-running dispute by the firm behind the world’s top selling Scotch, Johnnie Walker, and a raft of other whiskies.
Unite members will now receive a 3% pay rise for 2019, backdated to July, with next year’s increase based on the Retail Price Index figure for May 2020.
In July, Diageo announced an increase in annual pre-tax profits to £4.2 billion.
The company’s brands also include Smirnoff vodka, Bailey’s liqueur, Guinness stout and Gordon’s gin.
Unite regional industrial officer Bob MacGregor said “Unite is pleased to announce that following a ballot of our membership at all Diageo’s distilleries and bottling plants the revised pay offer has been accepted.
“The offer is a two-year commitment which ensures our members’ pay does not fall below the cost of living.
“This is the least the workers deserve because it’s their hard work and dedication which has driven Diageo towards record profits.
“Unite hopes this agreement can help press the reset button on our relationship with Diageo and it ensures the company pays its workforce what it deserves in the future.”
