Lobby of North Somerset Council - Local Government Pay

At their meeting of 29th September Labour councillors on North Somerset Council took a motion supporting the Local Government pay claim to the council meeting. A few UNISON members came to lobby the councillors as they arrived for the meeting. Sadly due to the massive Tory majority the council voted against it. The full motion is Item 6. 2 at http://apps.n-somerset.gov.uk/cairo/docs/doc28310.htm. Here are a few photos from the night.
