Call Notice – GMB Members In Councils And Schools Strike Over Pay Thursday 10th July

Members serving school meals, cleaning streets, emptying bins, looking after the elderly, helping children in classrooms and in all the other vital roles serving our communities are fed up with being ignored and undervalued says GMB.

GMB members working in local authorities and schools across England, Wales and Northern Ireland on strike on Thursday 10th July 2014 over pay will take part in a series of events and rallies in every area. Below is a list of provisional events.  In each council area there will be pickets on council depots and municipal buildings from 6am onwards. For councils run ferries, toll bridges and tunnells the pickets will be in place from midnight.  See Notes to Editors for GMB contacts in each region who are available to speak to the media and who can advise of locations and times of pickets and other events for areas not covered by the provisional list below.

The strike follows a ballot of GMB members that saw a 73% vote in favour of going on strike. The strike is for 24 hours. The ballot was conducted by the Electoral Reform Society and they reported 26,281 votes in favour of strike action, 9,799 against and 51 spoilt papers. Turnout was 23% which is slightly above average.
