Cardiff Council has issued 188 notices to try and force Council staff into accepting further pay cuts. Full support to the UNISON branch in their fight against the plan. Councillors should fight the government for more funding, not ordinary Council workers.http://cardiffunison.co.uk/section-188-post/
"We have advised the council from the very beginning that if they attempt to impose
the “package” we will ballot our members on whether to take industrial action or not.
Now that the Section 188 notice has been issued UNISON will take steps to comply
with the relevant legislation and ballot our members accordingly."

Sick joke this then... Labour's approach to forthcoming Euro elections.....
