UNITE: industrial action planned 13 October

The ACP's UNITE representatives are keen for members to be aware of two important forthcoming events this month. Following a recent ballot of members, UNITE - together with other unions - is taking industrial action on pay on Monday 13 October. The union is keen to point out that it is not intended for this action to place the public at risk as the focus is on working contracted hours.

Members are advised they can contact the ACP reps with any queries regarding working to rule.

The event aims to express concern about inequalities in Britain and address the issues of working households living in poverty. Members wanting to join the march can take advantage from free transport organised by UNITE. More details here
