Council protest at £2,000 cut

Issue No. 2159

Angry council contractors in the Ucatt union demonstrated outside Great Yarmouth town hall on Thursday of last week over a cut in their wages and hours. The building maintenance workers are losing about £2,000 a year under new contracts. 


The workers say that when Norse Commercial Services took on the new building maintenance contract in October it failed to tell them that the conditions would mean fewer hours at work.
