Potential Industrial Action - Friday 6 October

Huntingdonshire District Council (HDC) is preparing for planned industrial action. This is for UNISON members employed by the council.

This is in relation to a pay dispute relating to the pay award for 2023/24. If the issue is not resolved, UNISON intend to take strike action on 6 October and commence an ongoing period of work to rule from Monday 9 October. 

If industrial action does go ahead, we will have to delay green bin and bulky waste collection services on Friday 6 October to allow us to prioritise collecting your household and recycling waste. Garden waste collections that were due on Friday 6 will be moved to Saturday 7 if the action is taken by UNISON.

Most of our services will be delivered as normal, and you can stay up to date with all the latest information about any disruption to services. 

To assist with planning an event, we have produced a checklist for event organisers

Event Safety Advisory Group

We consider the safety of the public at organised events to be a priority and as such we play an active role in the Event Safety Advisory Group (ESAG).

What is the ESAG?

The ESAG is an advisory body comprising key representatives from relevant organisations. Its purpose is to offer advice to event organisers to promote public safety at events within the district. ESAG examines the safety aspects of events so they can proceed in a safe way.

Your event and what you need to consider

If you are organising an event you will be legally responsible for the safety and wellbeing of people attending and working at the event. The key to a successful event is to start your planning process as early as possible.

Below is a list of relevant links to consider when event planning:

What happens next?

Once you have considered all the above links, you will now need to notify us of the event.
Below is a checklist of the main documents that are required:

Once we have received your documents, they will be circulated to ESAG members. We will contact the organisers with any queries and questions. If necessary, we will invite the organisers to attend an ESAG meeting to discuss their proposals with ESAG members.
