Kirklees Unison union members in West Yorkshire have responded magnificently to the employer’s threat to sack and re-hire the whole workforce of 12,500.
The council has informed staff that if the single status deal is not agreed by 27 February they will sack and re-engage the whole workforce on a 90 day notice. They intend to impose the new contracts from 1 June.
Unison members have voted for action by a massive majority in a consultative ballot, with 84 percent agreeing to strike if the council issues any notices on 27 February.
The council have already stated that negotiations will now continue.
