Communication to UNISON Members Regarding Cuts Proposals



UNISON members will be aware from staff briefings, as well as reports in the press, that Coventry City Council plans to make further enormous cuts (£36m over three years).

Your union is very disappointed with these cuts proposals (or ‘savings’ as they are referred to in the official documentation) which are going to hit our members and the people of Coventry hard. We believe this will have a wide ranging negative impact on the jobs we provide and seriously affect the services that the citizens of Coventry rely on. We are also concerned that the Council has talked about looking at our terms and conditions.

Your UNISON branch will be formulating our response – we ask for your support in this and to look out for UNISON meetings to attend in the New Year to discuss, plan and organise the best way to defend our jobs and services .

In the meantime we urge you to contact us or your local steward if you have ideas about our response. We also need more members to come forward and become stewards – get int ouch for a discussion and more information.

Please contact Branch Office (see top of page for contact details) with any suggestions or enquires.

Thanks, Sarah Feeney, Branch Secretary, Coventry City UNISON
