Doncaster council strike averted

Doncaster council strike averted image

Strike action in Doncaster has been called off, which would have seen up to 200 council staff walk out on the opening day of the St Leger Festival.

Doncaster Council and trade unions reached an agreement last night to call off the industrial action involving highways, grounds maintenance and street cleaning workers.

Council workers had voted in favour of striking due to proposed changes to employment terms and shift patterns.

In a joint statement, the council and unions said: ‘Under the auspices of ACAS, an agreement was reached between the joint trade unions and Doncaster Council to suspend the proposed industrial action from 4th September to 14th September, this will enable further discussion to take place.’
