Striking Staff Offered A Payrise

In a bid to end industrial action in Southampton the City Council last week offered to exempt all staff earning £22,000 or less from pay cuts and ensure a £250 payrise for those earning £21,000 or less.

The offer forms part of a 10 point plan put to the unions. Sadly the unions bosses have refused to put the proposals to their members, despite claiming that 7 out of the 10 proposals were their ideas!

Union bosses seem more interested in striking for political reasons rather than seeking the best deal for staff and their members in difficult financial times.

I've absolutely no sympathy for these people. The private sector has had to feel the pain for the past 3 years, the public sector MUST NOT be exempt!
