Jacob Douwe Egberts

I am pleased that employees at JDE have voted overwhelmingly in favour of the latest deal negotiated with Unite. The agreed package includes details related to pay, employment conditions and compensation for those impacted, with the new working practices being from September 13. It has not been an easy process for all those involved, but I am encouraged that progress has been made after the uncertainty associates have faced for months.
