5th April 2019 - Environment Agency staff to go on strike over pay
Unison said its members had overwhelmingly backed action after a below-inflation pay rise of 1.3% was imposed on them. More than 85% of votes cast supported taking action, including stopping unpaid overtime and work travel during personal time. Unison said staff were angered their pay falls short of increases given to other public sector workers. Since 2010, Environment Agency workers are 20% worse off as their wages have failed to keep pace with prices, said Unison.
