Following Cosla's failure to table an improved pay offer for our local government workers, GMB has served Glasgow City Council with statutory notice for industrial action in the cleansing service. 7 days of strike action will begin on November 1st. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-58961077
Great work from all of our @GMBGlasgowCC reps to get the ballot over the line in Glasgow. They should never have had to fight this hard to get the recognition and reward they have earned working through the pandemic. Time for @COSLA to pay up, or face a #COP26 bin strike.
Thanks to Rab McKenna, a @GMBSouthern shop steward in Brighton, for his solidarity message to @GMBGlasgowCC cleansing workers. The industrial action ballot over COSLA pay closes Thursday, so if you've not returned your ballot vote YES YES today and tell @COSLA you're worth more!
