Idea Services S26 Stop Work Meetings

After five months of hard work your pay talks have made very little progress.

IDEA has not agreed to any of our claims for greater job security and has turned down our proposals regarding health and safety.

To make matters worse they have made no pay offer whatsoever.

Come along to your union meeting and have your say!

Note: You have a legal right to attend and these are paid meetings if you are rostered. A good turnout will send a strong message so do come along and have your say. Make sure your  Service Manger or Shared Services know which meeting you want to attend so they can arrange cover.
