The council’s housing maintenance contractor, Mears, has issued notices to four unions stating their intention to withdraw recognition.
Council staff were transferred to Mears under TUPE arrangements when they took over the contract in 2010.
The majority of the staff are members of the GMB, but notices have also been issued to Unison, Unite and UCATT.
A vigorous campaign to fight this attempt to derecognise the unions has already been launched in the city. There will be a demonstration outside a race day sponsored by Mears at Brighton Racecourse at 11.30am on Tuesday, 19th August. Everyone welcome!
