General secretary Dave Prentis took the union’s support and solidarity to striking library workers on the picket line in north London this morning.
The UNISON members were on the third day of their strike over Barnet council’s plans to outsource the borough’s library service.
“Council services up and down the country are under attack as the Tory government in Westminster piles still more cuts on five years of austerity,” said Mr Prentis.
“Our members in Barnet have been at the sharp end, with the council outsourcing anything it can. The spirit shown by our library workers today is a tremendous example to us all.”
