Bin worker Update 4: Victory for our members
“I am pleased to report that Barnet Council have dropped the proposed change to our members’ contracts.
The Council responded that they had listened to the views from Barnet UNISON and the views of our members in a face to face meeting which took place in the depot several weeks ago.
This is a massive result for our Bin workers.
It is the second time that we have balloted in a 12 month period and it is the second time they have delivered a solid vote for strike action.
The message is very clear for all workers facing attacks from employers – join a union and get involved in the union.
The union provides the opportunity to fight back.
I am really proud that our Barnet UNISON members can hold their heads up high along with Tower Hamlets UNISON members, SOAS UNISON members, and UNISON members who work for Wigan-Council commissioned drug and alcohol rehabilitation service ‘We Are With You’ who are currently taking 10 days strike action.
All of these UNISON members have stood together and voted to fight back.”
John Burgess, Branch Secretary, Barnet UNISON.
