Glasgow CCTV workers were set to strike for 48 hours this weekend in a battle over unsocial hours pay.

The Unison union members plan to walk out from 7pm on Friday. They are demanding the same pay rates as other workers on similar shift patterns.

They work for council-owned firm Community Safety Glasgow (CSG).

The CCTV workers get no extra money on top of their £8.25 hourly rate for working 12-hour shifts,

24 hours a day. Workers are set to follow up with another 48-hour strike from 7pm on 17 March.

  • Visit the picket line on Friday 4 March from 6.30pm at CSG HQ, Eastgate, 727 London Road, G40 3AQ. Send solidarity messages to enquiries@glasgowcityunison.co.uk

    GMB union members at Glasgow City Council have voted in a consultative ballot for industrial action, including strikes, to defend pay and conditions.
