Press Release COVENTRY CITY COUNCIL ATTACK WORKERS RIGHTS TO REPRESENTATION

Standard

The main trade unions of the City Council, UNISON, UNITE, NASUWT, NUT, CYWU and ATL are locked in a dispute with the City Council who are determined to attack workers’ rights to representation in the Council.
They are seeking to remove experienced, trained Union Reps by August 2015 in a rushed so called “consultation” process. 

Richard Harty, speaking on behalf of the Trades unions in dispute said “We are dismayed that a Labour controlled Council would seek to go further than a Conservative Government and more quickly.”

A steward who recently supported members said “I couldn’t work without the support of our full time reps with their expertise and knowledge”.

We are assuming that this is being done to clear the way of any opposition to attack council workers terms and conditions.

Today it is the Trade Union Reps. Tomorrow it’s the Council Workers.

We need more people to join a Trades Union to show support for our cause and defend workers’ rights!!
