Clamping in NLBP !

On Friday 2 May at 15.56pm a First team bulletin was issued including.....two items, the first was a ‘burst water’ pipes story……..however the next item was a short report that Clamping would be operational. UNISON responded immediately, raising concern about the lateness of the information and the lack of consultation.

It has come to our attention that the briefing has not been followed ………… warnings for staff just a clamp and a £120 fine.
UNISON is not supporting staff parking illegally, what we are saying is that the Council should have more notice of the use of a clampers. They also need to demonstrate that they are monitoring those parking in NLBP without permits. It is no secret that we are squeezing more and more staff into NLBP.

UNISON has asked for a meeting with the manager responsible for the introduction of the Clampers, we will provide an update for members in due course.

I think that at the very least staff should be issued with some guidance on what the rules and regulations are. I have witnessed clampers in operation elsewhere in the borough and the effect they have on unsuspecting victims. I would not want to see any of my colleagues suffer financially at the hands of the clampers
