Industrial action has been called by a number of public sector workers around the county.

Union members from UNISON, UNITE, the National Union of Teachers and the Fire Brigades Union have announced that they plan to strike next Thursday over issues with pay.

Hertfordshire County Council is planning ahead to minimise the impact of any strike on council services to ensure that it will be business as usual.

Contingency arrangements are also in place to ensure an emergency fire service will be maintained.

Councillor Derrick Ashley, cabinet member for resources and transformation, said: "The proposed industrial action by UNISON, UNITE and the NUT on July 10 is based on national issues over pay, although Hertfordshire County Council is continuing to hold conversations with the unions locally to try and help find a resolution.”
