21 Jul 2014 - All out on 28 Jul - Let's win a passport to a fair deal

Following the fantastic day of action on 10 July  we now need to increase the pressure on the employer and the Government to give members in HMPO the deal they deserve. That means fair pay, proper staffing and a concrete commitment to HMPO being run as a public service and not for private profit. 

We have served notice to the employer for a further day of strike action in HMPO on Monday 28 July. We need every single member in HMPO to support the action and drive the message home that more of the same is not acceptable.

We remain open to a negotiated settlement and will write to the employer to invite further talks this week in an effort to avoid the need to escalate the dispute. 

Read more about the negotiations and our demands.
