Exemptions - why we took a tough line ahead of the strike
UNISON has made the decision regionally that there will be NO exemptions for Life and Limb Cover for the strike action on Thursday and has responded to Somerset County Council in accordance with that decision.
Therefore managers should not be telling staff that they are exempted from the strike as a special case to cover for emergency situations. If your manager does approach you and say this please tell them that UNISON has not agreed Life and Limb/Emergency exemptions and contact us at the UNISON Office.
