Asda has signed a national two year agreement with the GMB union covering employees at 20 UK distribution depots.

The deal comes after 14 months of negotiations and provides a collective bargaining agreement for over 10,000 transport and warehouse employees.

Ian Stansfield, director of distribution at Asda, said: “This is a ground breaking agreement that brings our practices up to date and creates the framework for the way Asda Distribution and GMB will work together.

“It secures jobs, supports growth and ensures our operation is a efficient as possible at a time when our customers are relying on us more than ever to save them money everyday. More importantly, this agreement is based on solid foundations built in recent years and I look forward to a strong and productive relationship with the GMB.”
