An eight-month long strike at Bromley’s library services has finally ended following an agreement between Unite and the employer Greenwich Leisure Limited (GLL).
The agreement includes no compulsory redundancies, no new staffing structures, arrears' payments and pay progression.
Unite regional officer, Onay Kasab, said: 'This has been one of the longest all out, indefinite strikes of recent times and serves as an example to workers across the country preparing to fight the latest onslaught of council cuts.'
Diana Edmonds, national libraries director for GLL, said: ‘Times change and libraries need to change with the times to make sure customers can access the services they want and need in a 21st Century library.
‘In 2020 we will be focusing on enhancing and improving the customer experience, freeing up staff to spend more time helping library users get the most out of their visit.’
The strike action began in June 2019 over staffing and other issues.
