Video about the Camden traffic wardens on three-day strike this week.
A few libcommers popped down to the protest yesterday in support of the three-day strike by Unison members who work for NSL. A mate of ours did a short video.
The traffic warden demands are:
- A £2.50 an hour increase for all staff, from their current £8.09, which is below the London Living Wage. Camden council pays NSL £13 per hour for each warden, so is making a £5 profit per hour per worker.
- Enhancement of time and one third for all those who work between 8.00pm and 6.00am;
- Allowance for moped CEOs;
- Minimum paid annual leave entitlement of 23 days with a further five days after five years
of continuous service;
- Incremental pay scale;
- Career structure;
- Time and a half on a Saturday;
- Double time on a Sunday;
- A reduction in the working week from 42.5 to 35 hours.
The strike started on the 9th August and finishes on the 11th.
NSL was also partially involved with the Belfast traffic wardens dispute, though the struggle had begun with NCP initially.
