Workers at food giant Heinz have accepted a pay offer, ending a long-running dispute which led to strikes, it was announced today.

The Unite union said its members at the firm's Wigan site backed the two- year deal of 3.9% for 2010 and 2011 by 805 votes to 258.

"The trade union team and factory management are agreed on working closely together to enhance ways of working at the site," said Heinz.
