23-04-2008 21:40

Newtown Neighbourhood Office Picket
Council workers in Birmingham today protested against the imposition of a new contract, and a new pay and grading structure by Birmingham City Council. UNISON has branded the new pay structure as discriminatory although it was designed to end wage inequalities, some workers will lose up to half their pay.

Around 4,000 people protested in Victoria Square Birmingham during the previous strike and given the potential size of the dispute tomorrow, with teachers and civil servants joining the strike, there could be around 10,000 people protesting against Birmingham City Council. This is set to be the biggest public service dispute in the last 20 years.
