After a 20 month long dispute against being fired and rehired to remove staff from national NJC pay, Sandwell Leisure Trust on Friday 13th May announced that they would be returning staff to national NJC pay.
Congratulations to all UNISON members who showed the resolve and determination to keep on fighting for 20 months and congratulations to all , including the other trade unions, who took part in the solid day of strike action on 10 May.
Thanks to all those that supported the dispute, both inside UNISON and across the wider labour movement through out the country. Your solidarity was appreciated and it helped secure this win.
UNISON will now work to ensure that the pay, terms and conditions of workers at Sandwell Leisure Trust are maintained for whatever the future holds.
