2018 Industrial Action in Review
The Where's The Justice? bargaining campaign of 2018 was huge. Below are some of the highlights and the results of the review of our bargaining and industrial action.
Bargaining began in May 2018 and aimed to improve how members got paid and make sure they were properly valued for the work that they did. Bargaining had broken down by September and members voted to take industrial action. The following two months involved nationwide strikes, multiple lightning strikes, and increasingly disruptive work-to-rules.
A deal was reached in mediation on Thursday 29 November, and members voted to accept the offer in December.

On 5th February, surveys were sent out to members and delegates and kept open for one week. The surveys asked members and delegates a series of questions reflecting on the industrial action taken. The delegate survey included an additional question about support for delegates during industrial action.
Response rates were good, with 464 members and 64 delegates responding.
This summary contains graphs of members’ and delegates’ responses followed by a summary of the responses from both members and delegates.
