Government workers are to strike tomorrow (Tuesday) over London weighting
of the Transport and General Workers’ Union, Unison and the GMB are set to walk
out for one-day.
unions want to see a £4,000 flat-rate London weighting for Local Government
workers in the capital, and claim Local Government unions have failed to make
an alternative offer.
unions say they will extend the one-day strike to selective industrial action
over the next five weeks, involving Local Government workers, such as parking
attendants, in targeted action.
Douras, T&G head of local government in London and chair of the London
Provincial Council for Local Government said: "London is Europe’s most
expensive capital city. Many of our members are struggling to afford spiralling
housing and living costs. We want a just settlement for the hard working people
in London’s boroughs."
