United Kingdom - Joint union campaign against National Grid - August 12, 2009

The GMB, UNISON and UNITE trade unions have come together in a campaign against plans by the National Grid energy transmission company to close a facility in Newcastle with the loss of 189 jobs, some of which the company intends to switch to India.

The European Federation of Public Service Unions (EPSU) has written to the company's chief executive, calling for the decision to be reversed (See also Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 2 June 2009).
