Public sector strikes: New date set for second round

July 24, 2014 9:40 am

The BBC reports that local government and school support workers in England, Wales and Northern Ireland are to mount a second day of strike action, public service union Unison has said.

The walkout, which is scheduled for 30 September, follows a similar action earlier this month.

Unison urged the Local Government Association to take part in further talks to resolve a pay dispute.

Council services, schools and fire services are expected to be disrupted.

Unison said 90 per cent of local government and school support workers are receiving a 1 per cent pay rise after three years of pay freezes and below inflation pay rises.
