Hackney traffic wardens win Living Wage

Issue No. 2475

Traffic wardens in Hackney, east London, have won the London Living Wage of £9.15 an hour and new talks over pay after calling a five-day strike.

The Unite union members’ action, set to start on Monday of this week, was suspended for talks. The 30 workers are employed by Apcoa Parking. They voted 100 percent to strike.

They previously struck for two days in August. 

They want a sick pay scheme and a better pay deal this year than the 1.5 percent bosses offered.
