UNISON members have voted to strike for fair pay next Thursday, 10 July 2014. Here’s the first of a series of five reasons why you should join the strike.

You can’t afford another pay and pension cut

For most of you, this offer leaves your pay worth almost 20% less than in 2010. If you are in the local government pension scheme, falling pay means loss of pension for the rest of your life.

Please join the strike on Thursday 10 July – don’t go into work, and don’t work from home.
