Unison members in London are to go on strike on Tuesday as part
of their ongoing campaign for a £4,000 London weighting
The move follows a strike last month by Unison, TGWU and GMB
members when some special schools in London were forced to close.
Transport for children with special needs was also affected.
Unison is calling for a flat London weighting of £4,000 to
be introduced as workers currently get between £1,400 and
David Eggmore, Unison London region chairperson of local
government, said: “Rather than pay out money to agencies to provide
temporary staff, councils should be making jobs attractive and
Unison will continue with selective strike action in the near
future, which will be strengthened further unless an offer is made
by the employers before Christmas.
