Unison plans strike negotiations in Southampton

Consultations will take place over proposals to reduce wages in the city.

26 July 2011

Strike negotiations are continuing in Southampton as Unison tries to come to an agreement with the city council.

There have been a series of demonstrations by public sector workers in the past two months, who are angry about proposed pay cuts.

According to the Daily Echo, if union bargaining fails to find a resolution there is a chance more strikes will be called.

Parking wardens, street cleaners and toll collectors took to the picket line yesterday (July 25th) to show their dissatisfaction at the proposals.

Unison branch secretary Mike Tucker told the paper: "We will be asking for the same, for the pay cuts to be withdrawn. We will also be giving the council notice of more strikes."

The latest round of industrial action is expected to last for seven days.

It comes after Unison members held demonstrations over Severn Trent's proposals to end the defined benefit pension scheme and move to another.
