A UNISON rally will be held on the same day members at Sandwell Leisure Trust take to the picket lines for a sixth day of industrial action. The rally will take place on Thursday 24 February at 12.45pm outside Sandwell Council House in Oldbury.
UNISON has been in dispute at Sandwell Leisure Trust for over 16 months, because they fired and rehired staff to remove them from the national pay, terms and conditions negotiating body.
Sandwell Council has ended its relationship with Sandwell Leisure Trust, who will no longer run the boroughs leisure centres after 18 years.
UNISON welcomes the decision that a Labour-controlled council has ended its relationship with an organisation that fired and rehired its staff. We now call upon Sandwell Council to fix our dispute and ensure staff revert to their original pay, terms and conditions. Otherwise, the prospect of further industrial action happening during the Commonwealth Games moves closer.
Join UNISON in the Rally outside Sandwell Council House, 12:45pm Thursday 24 February.
Support staff at Sandwell Leisure Trust fighting for national pay.
