UNISON is set to ballot members working in academy schools on industrial action over pay.
UNISON has made the decision regionally that there will be NO exemptions for Life and Limb Cover for the strike action on Thursday and has responded to Somerset County Council in accordance with that decision.
Carers, social workers, refuse collectors, street cleaners and teaching assistants will be among thousands of local council and school support workers in Somerset set to strike on the 10th July as part of a nationwide action over pay.
Hundreds of thousands of public sector workers are on the minimum wage and many have to rely on state benefits, beg at foodbanks or fall prey to payday loan sharks to make ends meet.
