Greenwich UNISON steps up fight against pay cuts

GREENWICH UNISON is preparing to lobby Greenwich council again in defence of council workers' pay and in support of equal pay for low-paid workers.

The council's proposals under the Single Status scheme could lead to significant cuts in pay for many staff. The council claims that the proposals would combat low pay. UNISON disputes this, pointing out that many low-paid workers are lined up for pay cuts.

UNISON branch secretary Onay Kasab told the socialist: "The members we represent are not highly paid workers. The proposals as they currently stand could see large-scale pay losses for both white and blue-collar workers.

"How can this be a good deal for the low-paid when building cleaners will receive an increase of less than 2 per week (gross) while other low-paid workers such as grounds maintenance workers stand to lose 111.79 per week? Where is the money really going?"

  • Lobby the council, 6pm Wednesday 25 April, Woolwich Town Hall, Wellington St, Woolwich, SE18.
