RESIDENTS are being informed that some Council services could be affected this Thursday (10 July 2014) by national strike action but widespread disruption to Harlow Council services is not expected.

Public sector Union members have voted in favour of strike action, in a dispute over pay. Plans are being made at Harlow Council to ensure that the impact of any strike action taken on 10 July 2014 on Harlow residents is kept to a minimum.

On the day of strike action information on the impact will be shared on the Council’s website and social media channels. Residents are encouraged where possible to make use of the Council’s website – www.harlow.gov.uk – to make payments, find information, apply for services or to report issues.

Street cleaning, housing repairs, grass cutting, waste and recycling collections are not expected to be affected as these services are provided by contractors and partner organisations.

Councillor Jon Clempner, Leader of Harlow Council, said: “Council staff up and down the country are planning to strike as part of a national pay dispute. We are making preparations and we will try to minimise the strike’s impact as best we can, but some services could be affected.”
