Manual workers want 3% cost of living rise
Tuesday 26th March 2013, 10:00AM GMT.
Public sector employees were yesterday threatening to take industrial action after rejecting a pay freeze ‘offer’ from the States.
Around 200 manual workers attended a meeting at St Pierre Park last night to discuss the States’ intention of a 0% settlement.
They eventually voted against taking action but decided that the matter would be taken to a full industrial tribunal, where they would fight for a 3% cost of living increase.
However, Bob Lanning, the regional officer of union Unite, said the threat of disruption was far from over.
