“As you begin your latest strike action, I wanted to reiterate that the whole of your union and our 1.3million members stand behind you.
The pau cuts you have been hit with are appalling – and I understand the pressure that has had upon all of you.
I know you won’t back down until you get a proper offer from this Labour council who should know better. And I will be with you every step of the way.”
Dave Prentis, General Secretary UNISON
