Message of Solidarity to Barnet’s library staff & Barnet Unison
POSTED BY BARNET LABOUR ON JUNE 06, 2016
Leader of the Barnet Labour Group, Cllr Barry Rawlings said:
“On behalf of the Barnet Labour Group I would like to send a message of solidarity to all Library staff taking industrial action on 13th, 14th and 15th of June in opposition to Barnet Council’s terrible plan to cut library posts by 46%, reduce the staffed opening hours of our libraries by 70%, and slash floor space at our libraries.
“We oppose these library cuts, and the plans to outsource the service which we believe will have a devastating and lasting impact on our local community.”
