Parking enforcement continues

Camden Council is advising that parking enforcement will be carried out as usual, despite an intended seven-day strike by NSL.

The dispute is between NSL - the contractor used to employ civil enforcement officers (CEOs) - and their staff, and could go ahead from 23 to 29 September 2015.

Camden Council is committed to paying its contractors London Living Wage (LLW) including our NSL contract. UNISON are in dispute with NSL over pay and it was disappointing that an agreed improved offer was rejected by UNISON members.

An offer that would have seen NSL staff receive a 3.9% increase on their current pay, bringing their salary to £9.27 per hour, 12p an hour above LLW along with 50% of their quality bonus guaranteed was unfortunately rejected. This offer compares favourably with other London borough enforcement contracts.

We hope that this can still be resolved without any strike action being taken but we will seek to ensure that parking restrictions are still enforced and traffic is kept moving should any industrial action occur.
