QUEENS STRIKE ENDS IN VICTORY: note added, 24/1/4.

The Queens University Belfast Crèche strike ended this week in a victory for the crèche workers.

From a position last November where Queens management refused to consider any change in terms and conditions the workers have achieved a considerable improvement in pay.

For Assistant crèche workers pay will rise by £1000 consolidated over the next 2 years for Supervisors the rise will be £600 consolidated and a £400 lump sum this will be in addition to their annual NJC linked rise.

Thanks to everyone who gave support, without such solidarity this victory would not have been possible.

Time for Change.
