Meat Inspectors in a beef over unpaid wages

UNISON members employed as vets and meat hygiene inspectors staged a protest at the head office of the Food Standards Agency in London yesterday over non-payment of wages following a transfer of employment. UNISON National Officer Simon Watson said: “More than 100 vets have not been paid for up to two months after the contractor the FSA paid to employ them lost the contract. The new contractor has now promised to pay their wages, but the £500,000 cost could put terms and conditions in jeopardy in the future” http://www.unison.org.uk/asppresspack/pressrelease_view.asp?id=2663
