Library workers in Bromley have won a victory following their all-out indefinite strikes which began on 28 March.

Workers had been on strike after Greenwich Leisure Ltd (GLL), who have run libraries since they were privatised in 2017, refused to meet the pay offer other local government workers will be getting.

A members meeting on 18 April agreed to accept proposals which included: a pay increase from this April, protection for pay and conditions beyond TUPE protections, filling of 17 vacant posts, implementation of the London Living Wage, and paid trade union facility time.

This is a significant victory for workers against a company which took over the library service promising to make ″efficiency savings″.
