WEST GLAMORGAN STAFF ON FOOT AS CAR ALLOWANCE DISPUTE CONTINUES

Council staff in Wales stepped up their dispute with townhall chiefs yesterday and went to work on foot, the Western Mail reports (p5).

Union representatives said last night they might try to escalate action in their car expenses campaign across South Wales.

Local authority employees in West Glamorgan turned their backs on buses and poll cars against the advice of their union negotiators. Despite the national call for a breathing space in the car payments dispute they opted to walk to jobs from their offices.

Across Wales, other branches of Unison opted against further action. Many officials have been refusing to use their own cars for council business for the past five weeks in protest at plans to slash car allowances. Many stand to lose about £1,000 a year from the cuts.
