GMB, the union for local government workers, will protest and lobby a full Dorset County Council (DCC) meeting on 21 July 2016, over DCC proposals to increase Heads of Service salaries at a cost of around £60,000.
The protest will take place at 8:30am on Thursday, 21st July 2016 at the address as follows:

Ross Murdoch GMB Regional Organiser said "GMB members are vehemently opposed to these proposals and believe it smacks of hypocrisy at a time when council services are being axed and there is a real squeeze on other council employees’ jobs, pay and terms and conditions.”

GMB would like to invite anyone wanting to show their support to attend the demonstration tomorrow.”
