4,500 members of Unison at North Tyneside MBC are being balloted on the question of a one-day strike in protest at the threat of up to 500 redundancies.

The Journal (15 Jan, p17) reports that union leaders are confident a motion to strike will be carried; results will be released in two weeks.

North Tyneside appealed to the government last week in a bid to ease its cash problems. The authority says it faces a£13.6m shortfall in 1998-99 because of the poor cash deals from central government in recent years. The council has said plans being drawn up cut down 'significantly' on the numbers of redundancies. A spokesman said unions and employees were being consulted about the plans. The council should hear by the end of this month whether its appeal for more money has been successful.
