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. 

Foundation (Level 2) in Food Safety 

This classroom-based course is endorsed by the awarding body the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health. It is suitable and highly recommended for anyone working in a catering, manufacturing or retail setting where food is prepared, cooked or handled.

It is delivered by our team of experienced Environmental Health Officers, who carry out food hygiene inspections of food businesses in Huntingdonshire. One of the benefits of this course is that delegates will receive the latest food safety updates, advice and guidance from the Food Standards Agency. The course tutors also share their experiences and observations from their inspections of premises and the different situations they encounter.

Dates for 2023/24

Courses will be updated shortly.
