Action for Children staff using union bargaining
Talks are ongoing between Action for Children and its staff's representatives.
Industrial action could be on the cards for Action for Children staff due to an ongoing pay dispute.
Strike negotiations between the charity and its employees' representatives from Unison have seen limited progress being made.
Speaking to Civil Society, Mike Short, a national officer at Unison, noted the offer on the table is not acceptable.
"We're just pondering next moves now, but we've suggested that in early September we're minded to initiate formal strike proceedings if there isn't an improved offer," he added.
Mr Short continued by saying his group hopes further union bargaining may allow the parties to "sort something out".
Action for Children - which has been running for over 140 years - is proposing a pay freeze and a change in redundancy procedures that will make the process cheaper.
Mr Short observed that taking to the picket line is the last resort for his members, who hope an agreement can be achieved amicably.
