Solidarity with Camden UNISON
Wirral UNISON stands in solidarity with Camden Unison Traffic wardens, who are currently taking indefinite strike action against poverty pay.
The workers, predominantly low paid black members are employed by NSL Parking Enforcement Services returned a 100% yes vote and smashed the 50% threshold across the borough in their campaign for a £15.90ph wage.
It is truly scandalous that NSL, who operate in some of the most affluent areas of London make millions in profit each year, still expect you to survive on £12.70ph in one of the most expensive cities in the world. With 2023 being UNISON’s Year of the Black Worker, your campaign is critical in highlighting and eradicating the ethnicity pay gap.
On this, your 11th day of action, we commend you taking to picket lines despite the recent inclement weather (as you do in your day job) and your defiance in your fight against NSL. Unfortunately, it is an all too familiar scenario with employers across the country enforcing below inflation pay-rises in the midst of a cost-of-living crisis.
Camden UNISON, your fight really is everyone’s fight – and everyone in Wirral Branch is truly inspired by your campaign and we stand shoulder to shoulder with you in taking this incredibly important action.
