The advice and support workers of housing charity Shelter are angry over the imposition of a new pay scale at the charity leading to pay cuts of up to £5,000 for new starters, with the pay of current frontline staff only being guaranteed until 2016. Therefore the trade union Unite announced that 400 of its members would be walking out. The action was suspended following talks. The Shelter management came with a fresh offer which includes improved rates of pay for new starters and the withdrawal of controversial proposals to review existing staff pay in 2015.
