Walsall Housing Group could end this today – just make an offer workers can get by on
Industrial action at Walsall Housing Group will extend into next month, GMB Union has said
Almost 200 GMB members will walk out for six days in October 12, 14, 17, 21, 24 and 28.
The industrial action comes on top of strike dates in September
Staff are angry after being offered just a 3.1 per cent day deal, amounting to massive real terms pay cut with RPI inflation at 12.3 per cent.
Meanwhile Walsall Housing Group’s highest paid director was handed a 14 per cent pay rise between 2020 and 2021 
Justine Jones, GMB Organiser, said:
“GMB members don’t want to carry on this strike – they want to get a deal as quickly as possible.
“But they can’t be expected to take a massive real terms pay cut while fat cat bosses get the cream for another year running
“No matter what the weather, whatever the day, these workers are out there making sure Walsall’s houses are in a good state of repair especially during the Covid pandemic– now they need some help to make ends meet.
