Solidarity in Stoke

Stoke Clarion

 

Yesterday Clarion were proud to take part in the joint union demonstration outside Stoke Civic Centre,in solidarity with striking Local Government workers.

Local government workers have already endured three consecutive years of pay freezes, followed by a below inflation settlement in 2013.  For most of the workforce this year’s offer will be a further pay cut, leaving their pay reduced by almost 20% since the Coalition came to power.
