Strike action that took place today had a 'minimal impact' on services, according to Hertfordshire County Council.

Union members across the country from UNISON, UNITE, the National Union of Teachers and the Fire Brigades Union took part in industrial action over issues with pay today.

Hertsmere, which covers Borehamwood and Potters Bar, does not form part of the national framework for pay so services were being delivered as usual.

Derrick Ashley, cabinet member for resources, said: “The county council has planned ahead to protect essential services during any strike action and there is little disruption to our services.

“The strike action 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.”

The fire strike will continue until 7pm this evening, with a series of 15 two-hour strikes from Monday, July 14 until Monday, July 21.
