Shame on Shropshire Council

Dismissal letters have been sent to Tory controlled Shropshire Council's 6,500 strong workforce stating that all staff will be dismissed on 30 September and immediately rehired, but only if they agree to a 5.4% pay cut. UNISON is taking industrial action to resist similar imposed changes in Birmingham and Southampton councils and will be balloting our members in Shropshire: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-shropshire-14028188
