    Bricklayers To Take Strike Action - By Victoria Durham, East London and West Essex Guardian Series, UK
    BRICKLAYERS working for Epping Forest District Council will begin three months of industrial action on Monday, March 26, in a row over job grading.

    The workers, who belong to the Union of Construction Allied Trades and Technicians (UCATT), went on strike last year after allegedly being stripped of their craft status and 'downgraded' to handymen.

    The grading formed part of the district council's job evaluation for craft workers, which placed bricklayers and carpenters in the same pay grade. Both the bricklayers and carpenters appealed against the decision and an independent panel agreed to upscale the carpenters' job grade and pay.

    However the panel maintained the bricklayers' grade should remain the same.
