Council Workers in supported living services in Wigan, Lancashire, are preparing for industrial action.

Over 200 members of the Unison union voted by 99 percent for strike action, and 98 for action short of strikes.

The vote follows “job evaluation” by management that will result in workers performing the same task being paid at different rates.

One steward said, “A victory for us will give the rest of the workforce more confidence.”
