Unite the Union members at the RSPCA are currently being balloted to take strike action over new contracts being forced on them by RSPCA, who are proposing to end their hard working, skilled, caring and loyal staff‚Äôs contractual right to sickness, holiday and maternity pay.
The CEO Chris Sherwood is refusing point blank to negotiate with our union.
On Monday he will be on BBC Radio 5 Live‚Äôs Emma Barnett show at 11am.
