Notts County UNISON take industrial action to defend terms and conditions

As well as implementing savage and unnecessary cuts totalling some £28m Tory controlled Notts County Council are attacking staff terms and conditions including car allowances and annual leave. The branch have tried to negotiate with the council and even presented alternative proposals, but these were rejected by the council.

An industrial action ballot was held and a thumping 77% voted for action short of strike action. From Monday 29 March UNISON members will be taking the following action:

. Refusing to use their own vehicles for work purposes
. Refusing to cover for absent colleagues
. Refusing to work more than their contracted hours
. Refusing to carry out any work not specifically mentioned in job descriptions

UNISON members are committed to providing services to the community but they will not be bullied by an employer who is attacking terms and conditions, even when UNISON have showed them where they could find over £28m.
