Members of Gwynedd Council will take part in a walk-out today to demonstrate their anger over the Council's decision to award 7% pay rises to some of its' Corporate Directors.
The protest will be led by Unison, after an emergency meeting was held last week.
Our members are understandably extremely angry about the decision to offer Corporate Directors a large pay rise whilst our members are making sacrifices to save jobs and services. It is grossly unfair and insulting to Cyngor Gwynedd Council workers.
– Silyn Roberts, union Branch Secretary for Gywnedd
We will also be holding a lobby of the Council meeting which is taking place on the same day. We know that it is not only our members who are angry about unfair pay rises, but also members of the wider community. So we are calling on members of the public to stand alongside us on Thursday to send a clear message to the Council that awarding pay rises to Corporate Directors whilst the majority of Council workers are giving up terms and conditions is simply not acceptable.
The action will take place today at 12.30pm.
