Sheffield Dinner Ladies Petition for Fairness over pay

This is another great campaign by UNISON 3 Companies initiative - battling here to get privatised school dinner ladies (apologises for any sexist assumptions) paid decent minimum terms and conditions by Chartwells.

It is completely shameful that such companies seek to maximise profits out of the misery of already poorly paid employees.

I note that Sheffield City Council is run by the Lib Dems and I wonder what local MP Nick Clegg thinks of this?  After his "Savage Cuts" grandstanding I suppose he approves of this sort of thing as a way to bring down the public sector wage bill?
