Unions have suspended a planned local government pay strike expected to have taken place week.

The industrial action by members of the GMB, Unison and Unite unions will take place next Tuesday, October 14.

The impact this will have on Dacorum Borough Council services will only be known on the morning of the strike, however – like the earlier stirke – it falls on a green bin collection day.

Last time, all green bin collections were suspended for the day as part of the action.

Around 180 council employees of the Hemel Hempstead Civic Centre took part in the summer walkout, out of a total of 730 members of council staff.

Herts County Council Union members are also expected to take part in next week’s strikes.

Updates will be posted on both authorities’ Facebook and Twitter pages, with more information to be made available at dacorum.gov.uk/strike
