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. 

What is a housing association?

Housing associations are also known as registered social landlords (RSLs) and registered providers (RPs). They all need to be registered with the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).

Housing association rents are lower than rents charged by private landlords for a similar property so that they are likely to be more affordable to people with lower incomes.

All RPs are subject to the same standards and address the same housing priorities.

A developer who is not an RP may be eligible to receive public funding to build affordable homes, but the homes must be managed by an RP when they are completed.
