Posted on July 8, 2014

A number of unions will be calling on their members to take one day strike action on Thursday 10 July.

The following is a press release from Central Bedfordshire Council

Central BedfordshireWhile we're working to minimise disruption to local services arising from the strike action, particularly those which protect the public and support vulnerable people, you should be prepared for some level of disruption.

Services such as leisure centres, pest control and bin collections, which are operated by contractors will continue as normal and we anticipate that appointments for things like registering births and deaths will not be affected. Residents with appointments will be notified if this changes.

Some services, including our customer contact centres may be subject to delay and you may want to consider getting in touch with us another day if your query is not urgent. 


Schools in Central Bedfordshire will have their own procedures in place and will contact families directly to let them know about any full or partial closures.  

Schools will also notify the council of any closures and that information will be regularly updated on our website from 5pm on Wednesday 9 July. Parents and carers can sign up for updates on schools closures by visiting our website.

We will be regularly updating our website with details of how the strike action is affecting services and will also be posting messages on social media. For the latest updates go to our website, Twitter or Facebook pages.
