Camden NSL parking workers strike against low pay

5 July 2012

More than 150 Unison members who work in parking enforcement in Camden, central London, are set to strike for two days on 11 and 12 July against low pay.

Camden Unison is the first Unison branch to win union recognition for collective bargaining with private contractor NSL, which runs parking enforcement for Camden Council.

The workers, who earn just £8.09 an hour for working in all weathers and often face abuse from motorists, are now determined to win higher pay.

How to help

Please send messages of support to Camden Unison. Donations to the strike fund can be made by cheque to ‘Unison Camden NSL’, c/o Camden Unison, 59 Phoenix Road, London NW1 1ES.

The Unison members voted to stage an intial two-day strike by an enormous 97.7% on a 63% turnout. There will be picket lines from 6.30am at the six NSL bases across Camden on Wednesday 11 and Thursday 12 July.

And Camden Unison says:

There is no doubt that members are prepared to take further action, if necessary, in the immediate run-up to and even during the Olympics in order to secure long overdue justice on pay.
