Local government workers will strike for the second day in
August over their claim for a £1,750 or 6 per cent pay
Unison, GMB and TGWU – the three main unions in local
government – agreed that a second national strike would take
place on August 14. A third day is being planned for September.
750,000 local government workers took part in a one-day strike
this week (July 17), after rejecting an offer of 3 per cent.
