Unite's Council Pledge

Local authority trade union pledge
From street cleaning and waste collection to youth work, social care, school support and much more besides, local government workers provide services we all rely on and which make our lives better.

At a time when local authorities are facing devastating and unneccesary cuts from the Tory-led government, Unite calls on councils to take positive steps to stand with their employees and pledge to engage and work together with trade unions to protect jobs and vital public services.
