Spate of industrial action continues across public services


While some of the major disputes in public services have been or are being resolved, several significant strikes and protests over pay are still taking place. Various groups of non-teaching staff in schools, colleges and universities are all involved in action. Workers in colleges in Scotland have a rolling campaign of action while those in schools, organised by UNISON, Unite and GMB are planning strikes at the end of September. Non-teaching staff in universities in England and Wales will also walk out at different times in September and the beginning of October. Other disputes involve clinical support workers in Wirral in North West England, council workers in Wales, social workers in Swindon in Central England, traffic wardens in Camden in North West London, council workers in Tower Hamlets in East London, workers at the Pensions Regulator and staff at the national Environment Agency who have been involved in a long-running campaign of industrial action.
