  • UNISON, alongside other Environment Agency trade unions, submitted the pay claim for 2023/24 on behalf of all EA staff.
  • UNISON strike action planned for 3-6 November 2023 was suspended, following agreement from Government Ministers to approve the EA’s Pay Flexibility Business Case (PFBC) and a commitment from the employer to engage in new pay talks on this basis.
