Waltham Forest members rejecting 2%

I suppose I am not given to such silliness but I feel a little sad to note that the first birthday of this blog passed unremarked upon here, although I am pleased that the anniversary post was so much in the spirit of the blog, as is this latest news...

I was pleased to address a meeting of the Waltham Forest local government branch today on the question of pay, alongside comrades from the PCS, NUT and CWU. The UNISON members present voted unanimously to reject 2%.

No one seemed keen on 2.5% either…

Congratulations to the Waltham Forest branch for organising the meeting – they have a further joint union meeting on pay coming up, so all London branches need to follow suit!

Happy birthday if belatedly then. Yours is one of the few blogs I have on my favourites list.
