Solidarity with workers taking action this week - you've got it right!
Congratulations to PCS members taking action today in the fight for fair pay and to UNISON members in the health service taking action short of strike action.
Public service workers deserve a decent pay rise – and will only get this by taking action. In local government, our pay has only ever edged ahead of increases in average earnings after national strike action.
Local Government workers who discover that the reason our National Joint Council (NJC) Committee suspended our strike action and failed to recommend rejection of unsatisfactory proposals is because they were doing what they were told by the employers will conclude that we should soon be joining our comrades in other unions again.
