Firstly TA s would like to thank county Durham residents for their support. We are facing life ruining pay cuts of 23% or 25% depending on how long you have worked. Council claims of only 10% are rubbish, that is if you increase hours by 4 1/2 every week without being paid for them. We find out the result of 3rd consultation on September 14th. We will be forced to strike to protect our own families. This would NEVER be forced upon a predominantly male workforce.
