Traffic Warden strike

Traffic Wardens in Wiltshire recently took strike action on Saturday 7th May, and Tuesday 17th May, protesting against a proposed pay cut of 10%, through the removal of unsocial hours payments.

Wiltshire Council is proposing to remove the current, contractual payment, for around 350 staff, including social workers (who would lose 20%, or about £7000), traffic wardens (who would lose over £2000), highways, leisure centre staff, and care workers (reablement workers)

GMB says not a penny off the pay!

Not a penny off our pay!

Thirty GMB members protested outside County Hall in Trowbridge on Friday 25th March, protesting against proposed pay cuts of up to 20% for key workers.

The Cuts would reduce social worker pay by around £7000, and a 10% pay cut proposed for traffic wardens would reduce their pay by over £2000.

GMB is sending a strong message to Wiltshire Council, that these cuts will not be allowed to go ahead.

Although the cuts have been paused, the council have not taken them off the table, and are looking at reintroducing the proposals. GMB also has concerns about the consultation process.
