Police civilian staff go on strike

Members of Unison are striking over the restructuring of Nottinghamshire Police.

30 August 2011

Civilian members of Nottinghamshire Police are taking part in a 24-hour strike today (August 30th).

As well as this, Unison is also calling on its members to consider continuous work to rule action from tomorrow.

The dispute centres over proposed restructuring plans to the force - which covers an area of over 800 square miles - to help it save £40 million and union bargaining may be required in order to come to a resolution.

Assistant Chief Constable Ian Ackerley said: "We are extremely disappointed it has come to this as we believe industrial action will not benefit police staff, the organisation or ultimately, the public of Nottinghamshire."

He added he wants individuals to recognise that the changes being implemented are needed.

ACC Ackerley said measures are being taken to "mitigate" any problems that may arise.

Over 350 staff have been made redundant so far, but fewer than 20 of these were compulsory.
