Industrial Action update

Share this page

Wednesday 29 May 2019

The States of Guernsey understands Unite the Union members have decided to hold industrial action until midnight tonight.

We also understand some members will take a 'work to rule' approach for the rest of the week, declining overtime requests.

At the current time, the States of Guernsey expects the operation of the airport and harbour and essential services at the hospital to remain unaffected. Furthermore other hospital services are continuing, however if this should change, we will issue further advice.

It is unclear at the current time what impact there will be today and tonight on sewage, rubbish and recycling collections. Again, further advice will be issued today as soon as it is available.

It is frustrating that Unite have decided to move forward with this disruptive action. A formal disputes resolution process was agreed yesterday, meaning there is a clear path to resolving the disagreement over pay and conditions without the need for industrial action.
