Camden traffic wardens to strike for fourteen more days from 4 February in fight for decent pay

29 January 2019

CAMDEN UNISON MEMBERS, traffic wardens, on the outsourced parking enforcement contract with NSL are taking further strike action from MONDAY 04 FEBRUARY in their continuing battle to win a meaningful pay rise.

The traffic wardens have already been on strike for 19 days this past autumn and their next action is set to last for 14 days (through to Sunday 17 February).

The Traffic Wardens make millions in profit for the company and millions in revenue for Camden Council. NSL pays its company directors over £250 an hour, but is refusing to pay the traffic wardens just £11.15 an hour. The 400 percent pay rise given to the top director over the last two years would, on its own, cover the cost of raising the wardens’ salaries twice over.

So, there’s plenty of money available for them, but not for the traffic wardens whose basic rate has now fallen below the London Living Wage for last year.

Camden UNISON believes our traffic wardens should get a better share of the profits they make for NSL and the Council and you can help them achieve this by supporting their strike, visiting the picket lines.

They picket at the following locations (but check with unison@camden.gov.uk as they are subject to change due to other activities during the strike)… they’d love for you to enjoy them in solidarity!

7-10.30am at:

Kilburn Base                 199 Belsize Road NW6 4AA
Camden Car Pound      Regis Road NW5 3EW
Bloomsbury Base         13-15 Guilford Street WC1N 1DW

Send messages of support and invite a speaker to your next union branch meeting: unison@camden.gov.uk
