Enforced cuts in pay and conditions spark council protest

UNISON members working for Falkirk council will protest in numbers at the council meeting tomorrow (Wednesday Oct 4) against the council's threats to tear up everyone's existing contracts and impose new pay, grades and conditions.

This is an attempt by the Council to impose their proposed job evaluation on staff rather than negotiate the changes needed by equal pay legislation and the single status agreement.

The local UNISON branch has organised a lobby at Falkirk Municipal Buildings at 12 noon to allow staff to take their anger direct to the councillors.

Gray Allan, UNISON Falkirk's Branch Secretary said: "We are expecting a big turn out of members to show their anger about the council's threats. UNISON has made it clear that we do not accept their attempt to force people to accept worse pay and conditions"

The demonstration will be at 12 NOON - 12.30pm Wednesday, 4th October, 2006, Outside Falkirk Municipal Building, During Full Council Meeting UNISON spokespeople will be available for interview.
