Police staff to be balloted on industrial action

Public services union UNISON in Scotland is to ballot its members who work as civilian staff for the police over industrial action. The union says that its member have three major concerns which the employers have failed to recognise. The first involves the planned closure of contact command and control centres, with over 300 jobs at risk. The second is the reduction of redundancy terms from 1 April and the third is the employers' decision to restrict leave for over 1700 staff over the summer during the Commonwealth Games sporting event.
