London weighting strike

Submitted by AWL on 2 December, 2002 - 12:06

Thousands of teachers were joined by council workers who are members of Unison - both fighting for a flat rate of £4,000 for London Weighting - on a march in central London. Fire fighters also joined the demo. While police officers get over £6,000 in London Weighting, teachers get only £3,105 in inner London and £2,043 in the outer boroughs.

Both teachers and local government union activists need to put pressure on their unions to step up the action if this dispute is going to make an impression.
