Janitors

Issue No. 1778

Janitors at schools and education centres in Edinburgh planned to strike on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of this week over pay. The city council is refusing to pay a nationally agreed irregular hours payment of £20 a week. The money is to compensate workers for their 6am to 6pm days. Pat Rafferty, TGWU official, said, 'We have been trying to resolve this issue since May 1999. We offered to move to 7.30am start times but the council rejected this.'
