Strike at Sandwell Leisure Trust 25 June

UNISON members working for Sandwell Leisure Trust will undertake another day of strike action on Friday 25 June. The industrial action is against Sandwell Leisure Trust’s fire and rehire to remove all staff from the national NJC negotiating body on pay, terms and conditions. Sandwell Leisure Trust’s promise not to change any terms and conditions expires March 2022, the year when the new £73million Aquatic Centre for the Commonwealth Games will be showcased in Smethwick.

Sandwell Leisure Trust’s fire and rehire was completely unnecessary. They began the pandemic with £4million in the bank. Now they still have £3.9million sat in the bank as reserves.

Please show your support for UNISON by writing your opposition to fire and rehire to Lynda Bateman, Chair of Sandwell Leisure Trust Board, c/o Ash Rai, Chief Executive, Sandwell Leisure Trust HQ, Carnegie Building, Victoria Road, Tipton, West Midlands, DY4 8SR – or email Lynda Bateman via

Thank you.
