Workers had been protesting over pay on Sunday when talks between workers union (Bakers & Allied workers union) and management failed.

But a last minute pay offer has halted the protests for the time beings as the union Unite will now ballot their members with the new offer.

Allied Bakeries had earlier on Sunday defended its workers pay saying;

“All employees involved are paid at rates above that recommended by the Living Wage Foundation and benefit from company subsidised pensions.
“We have increased our rates of pay every year for the past 10 years and will do so again this year.”
