GMB Trade Union - Further strikes announced by Wandsworth traffic wardens

Another four days of action planned by employees of NSL, Wandsworth Council’s parking contractor

GMB, the union for parking attendants, have announced members will take a further four days of strike action as the dispute over pay continues. 

The members, who are employed by Wandsworth Council’s parking contractor NSL, are seeking an improved pay deal which reflects the extremely high rate of inflation and the attached cost of living crisis. 

The latest dates which have been announced to the employer are Friday 9, Monday 12, Friday 23 and Monday 26 September. 

The dispute has been ongoing since June and has already taken in 20 days of strike action so far. 

Paul Grafton, GMB Regional Officer said: 

“This dispute has been rumbling on for two months now, with every day of strike action costing Wandsworth Council a fortune in lost revenue. 

“Our members are determined to secure a proper pay deal, and this dispute will continue until NSL table a pay deal that the members are happy to accept. 

“Once again, this lost revenue will need to be paid for somehow, so presumably Wandsworth Council will be either raising council tax rates or else cutting services within the borough. 

“If any residents are concerned about either happening, they should contact their local councillor to ask them to apply some pressure to NSL.”
