Barnet Bin workers dispute update 2
We conducted an internal strike ballot on the management proposal to enforce a change to the contracts of Bin workers.
We had a 99% turnout and a 98% vote to reject the proposal.
This was shared with management.
Management have been told that our members feel they are being bullied by this proposal.
They know first hand about the growing anger amongst the workforce in response to this proposal, yet they continue to pursue it.
This vote is a warning to Barnet Council that the mood within the workforce is for strike action if management seek to force the contract change through sack and re-engage.
For a period between 2009 and 2016 Barnet UNISON had strikes every year.
We know how to organise strikes and we are ready to mobilise if on Monday 20 September management persist with this aggressive act.

Look out for our next update on Monday
