Support strikers against low pay

You can do something today to support low paid UNISON members in dispute with Camden's parking contractor, NSL (http://camdenunison.org.uk/2012/10/19/the-nsl-dispute-raised-in-parliament-by-john-mcdonnell/#more-1453).



Check if your MP has signed the Early Day Motion in support of the strikers (http://www.parliament.uk/edm/2012-13/604). If they haven't then get on to them and ask them to do it (http://www.writetothem.com/).



The Early Day Motion (EDM) calls on NSL "to enter into serious negotiations with UNISON and table an improved pay offer, failing which it calls on Camden Council to review its contract with NSL with a view to cancelling the contract if the company does not improve its offer."



Since the UNISON members who have been taking action against NSL certainly want an improved pay offer, getting your MP to sign the EDM is a small step you can take in solidarity with their struggle.

Thanks for this blog Jon. As a new Branch Secretary in Sussex I find constant useful information on this that i do not receive from any other UNISON source!
