GMB trade union have today begun to ballot members for industrial action at Walsall Housing Group, one of Birmingham and the West Midlands biggest housing groups.

This action marks an escalation in response to company top brass outright refusing to negotiate on a below inflation pay offer.

Members at the company will be asked for their views on taking further industrial action until 25th July.

Justine Jones, GMB trade union organiser, said:

“Our members are fed up of real terms pay cuts.

"They’re saying enough is enough and have taken the difficult step of balloting for industrial action over the derisory offer tabled by company management.

"What’s more, they’re sending a clear statement that they expect frank and fair negotiation with their union, GMB.The company's unwillingness to attempt to increase their offer, which has already been rejected, is disappointing to say the least.

"This company cannot run without it’s loyal and dedicated staff, and that’s why we’re committed to delivering what they deserve."
