Coventry City UNISON Statement on #UNITE Industrial Action in Coventry City Council #CovBinStrike

Standard

UNISON supports the right of UNITE members to take strike action following a large majority vote by their members. We offer our full solidarity during their strike action.

We urge Coventry City Council to recognise the legitimate issues raised by UNITE, to consider any and all options that exist to address them and to reach a negotiated agreement to avoid disruption to waste collection for Coventry residents.

We urge the City Council to continue private and meaningful negotiations in order to resolve the issue for the staff involved, who like all frontline staff have delivered vital frontline services in the most challenging of circumstances throughout the COVID pandemic.
