Cost of Living Crisis: Join protests across Britain

Dear colleague,

Cost of Living Crisis: Join protests across Britain called by the People's Assembly, Saturday 12 February

Inflation is soaring, eating into the value of your wages. The energy companies are protecting their dividends by raising household bills by 50%.

People are anxious and angry and this should be turned into action.

ISS KAD pay offer rejected "obviously falls far short of our members' aspirations"

11th of February 2022


Following initial pay negotiations with the Company, the Union rejected a 0.9% increase as this obviously falls far short of our members' aspirations. There has not been any improved offer forthcoming and the National Executive Committee has taken the decision to raise the issue of rates of pay and conditions of service on the ISS (DLR) contract with UK management of ISS.

I will keep Branches advised of all further developments.

Yours sincerely,
