Branch Secretary :

Strike action at Peter Bedford Housing Association

100% vote to strike


Unite members at Peter Bedford Housing Association voted 100% to strike on a 96% turnout.  The strike will start on Monday December 3rd at 8.00am and continue until Friday December 7th.  


As we have previously reported, senior management are refusing to pay staff the increment due for this year in accordance with this year's NJC pay scales, claiming it is unaffordable.  There is an agreement that the employer honours the nationally agreed scale.  Reps have offered to revisit the accounts with management, but the mood of members is determined.

Before Posting

We welcome debate and discussion on our website, but we also want an open, respectful, inclusive space in which forms of abuse or personal attack will not be tolerated. Comments will be moderated and will be removed if they are found to be unduly offensive. You should also be very careful in posting information about your employer. Employers do visit the website and if you think a comment could get you into trouble for releasing confidential or sensitive information, or for bringing the employer into disrepute, please do not post it. It remains your individual responsibility to ensure that what you post is appropriate. Please therefore just give a moment's thought to what you are saying. The types of comments that are likely to be moderated are:

  • Personal abuse or attacks on an individual.
  • Information which breaches another person's right to confidentiality.
  • The use of offensive language, including swear words, or language which is racist, sexist, or otherwise breaches equalities standards.
  • Anything that might place the Branch or the wider union in legal jeopardy.
  • Adverts or information which is posted for commercial gain.
