Council strike contingency plan

Hertfordshire says it has made preparations for today's one-day strike to ensure services are affected as little as possible.

The public service union, Unison, is taking the action as part of its campaign for more pay. The full story is running on BBC News Online.

Hertfordshire County Council says it is satisfied it has plans in place to keep disruption to a minimum.

The authority says it is focusing on providing sufficient cover for all essential 'life and limb' services, including the emergency services and services for the elderly, disabled and other vulnerable groups. According to the authority these plans have been drawn up with the co-operation of Unison.

The Council's Customer Service Centre lines will be open as usual on 01438 737555 or 01923 471555 from 8am - 8pm.

Unison workers include cleaners, school meals staff, refuse collectors, social workers, architects and housing benefit employees. The union has warned of further action if the pay demands are not met.
