GMB MEMBERS AT WEST LOTHIAN REFUSE SERVICE TAKE STRIKE ACTION IN PAY DISPUTE
West Lothian Council need to come back to the negotiating table to resolve this dispute, says GMB
Sixty GMB members today took strike action at West Lothian Council Refuse Service over the Councils imposition of a pay cut. The Council wants to down grade all the staff which would result in them facing a pay cut of at least £2800 per year.
After the members voted overwhelmingly for strike action they staged the first one day stoppage today.
Alex McLuckie, Senior Officer in GMB Scotland said,
“Our members are not prepared to accept this pay cut which the Council wants to impose upon them. I am delighted with the level of support for the industrial action today and the support they got from other employees and contractors. West Lothian Council need to come back to the negotiating table to resolve this dispute.”
