Some 430 admin workers at Kirklees council in West Yorkshire have voted to strike by 70 percent on a 45 percent turnout.

The strike is over council plans to reduce admin support across the council by half.

The Unison members agreed strike dates on Wednesday of next week and 12-14 June.

The union’s demands are for no compulsory redundancies or pay cuts and for the council to work within negotiated agreements.

Doncaster council workers have voted to take action short of a strike over pay and conditions. But the Unison members narrowly voted by 50.4 percent not to strike.
