Portsmouth traffic wardens are going on strike this Wednesday over 'micromanaging bosses'.
Unite, the country's largest union which represents 23 civil enforcement officers (CEOs), have accused the council of being focused on intimidating union members rather than resolving the dispute.
For three months now, as this has been growing, the city council have only met twice with Unite.
The 24 hour strike is over:
- an unfair job evaluation process which resulted in CEOs getting mo pay increase, while supervisors' income rose
- poor staff changing facilities, with no segregation between men and women (a plaster board was only just been put up)
- a hostil, overbearing management style
- a 40% increase of penalty charge notices that have to be given out on a daily basis
- a full days pay docked after striking for 2 hours on January 28th
Unite regional officer Ian Woodland said, "Our members have reluctantly decided to move to full strike action. It is regrettable that we have to take this step, but the attitude of council management has left us with no alternative."

For the first time since his appointment, the new Minister for Portsmouth will visit the city today.
Michael Fallon will meet with business leaders to try to come up with a plan to help employment in the city, following the loss of more than 900 ship building jobs at BAE Systems.
