It is being co-ordinated by Unite.

Britain’s biggest union, Unite, is co-ordinating a number of protests in Bromley and other areas in the capital.

Council workers in the borough are being balloted for strike action following the budget announcement in Parliament yesterday.

This will include libraries, gardeners, planners and social services.

The ballot closes on March 27.

Unite regional officer Onay Kasab said: “We make no secret of the fact that we are building toward co-ordinated action to defend jobs, pay and services in London – because that is what is required.

“We will organise co-ordinated strike action to defend pay, conditions and services – we will ensure that workers take action together as more and more workers join the campaign.”
