Manchester strike on hold

Issue No. 2250

Over 300 Unison union members at the newly-formed Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) body have just finished voting in their official strike ballot.

The action is to halt compulsory redundancies at TfGM.

Unison regional officials had joined with local branch officers to urge members to vote yes.

However, the union has since issued a “joint statement” with management that talks of avoiding industrial action—despite the lack of any firm agreement, as yet, on saving jobs.
