WEA withdraws imposed proposals following strike vote
Unite members at the Workers Educational Association had voted by 85% in support of industrial action over an imposed restructure of London Region Staff without full and meaningful consultation. However, as a result of discussions with ACAS involvement, a last minute agreement ensures that the WEA’s 111 year history with no strike action can continue!
• The current proposals have been withdrawn
• The ‘at risk’ letters have been withdrawn
• New proposals will be presented to Unite, staff and regional governance.
• Both parties agree that these proposals will be the basis for meaningful consultation.
This is a major achievement and Unite members at WEA London Region have remained solid in their commitment to ensure WEA remains true to its values - equal, democratic and just. (Peter Storey Regional Industrial Officer)
