Negotiations Underway for Stanley Leisure. 2005-07-11
Recently, strike threats have faced Stanley Leisure. The company now has now offered a pay raise of 3.5% or £600 (about $1000) to its casino employees. The lowest paid employees, make £10,300 (just over $18,000), this could rise to 5.8%. Stanley Leisure previously offered a 3.2% rise. This upset the employees, and they threatened to strike over it.
GMB, Britainís general unionís negotiators will hold a vote among the Stanley Leisure staff to see if the offer is doable. GMB Organizer Mick Ainsley believes the employees should accept the offer. Ainsley believes the new offer is from negotiations by the GMB. The result of the vote will be shown to the public on July 11, 2005.
Some may believe that Stanley Leisure is being cheap about the issue. The company has sold 624 betting shops to William Hill, earning £505 million ($886 million.) To some this means that the company is worth multi millions, on top of the millions they posses. The strike scares the company, but the employees know that they deserve more. Tomorrow will tell if they will get that, or threaten to strike.
