Islington Labour is committed to fighting for fair pay, not just at the Council, but across our contractors and in the private sector.
Cllr Richard Watts and Cllr James Murray were proud to support staff at homelessness charity St Mungo’s Broadway in their dispute with management over outrageous proposals to cut their terms and conditions, when Unite members were on strike in October (pictured below).
