Hands off Newcastle Staff's Terms and Conditions

This petition had 1,159 supporters

Newcastle City Council is proposing to remove shift allowance and unsocial hours payments for weekends, and delay the payment of night rate from 8pm to 10pm.

These changes will have a significantly detrimental financial impact on up to a third of the workforce, some 1800 staff, by reducing their pay by up to a third. Staff will be forced to leave and there will be a consequent impact on council services. 

We support Newcastle Council staff and demand the Council withdraws these proposals immediately.
