Today (28th Sept) Kev Allsop, Secretary of Bolton Trades Council, took a message of support to the striking UNITE members who are entering their 17th week of industrial action.

Dispute

21 Unite members working at the E Lancs NHS trust are still owed back pay after the trust management failed to fully honour made in 2019 to move workers from pay band 5 to band 6. The uplift was agreed but the members agreed that it could be put on hold whilst they focused their attention on the Pandemic and the workforce believe that the employers failure to act is an example of Bad Faith and they must therefore continue with Industrial Action.

General Secretary Visit

The Picket line was today visited by the UNITE General Secretary, Sharon Graham who promised continued support from the union.

Show your support

After 17 weeks of strike pay and winter fast approaching we ask that Trade Union branches, CLP’s and concerned individuals send any and all support possible to the strikers.
