SOUTHAMPTON COUNCIL WORKERS VOTE FOR STRIKE BALLOT

400 Southampton City Council workers yesterday unanimously voted for a strike ballot unless the council drops controversial budget proposals - which could see up to 150 job losses - by 6 December.

Branch secretary Mike Tucker said:

'Today's turnout demonstrates the strength of feeling over the council's budget. For every member who attended, there are five other council workers who are Unison members, but were unable to leave their workplace to attend. Even at this late stage we call on the council to drop their proposals, wait until the full council meeting on 19 February and show in practice that they value their workforce'.

The meeting also called on Unison to withdraw all funding from the Labour Party.
