Parking wardens secure £15 an-hour pay rise after 59 days of strike action

CAMDEN parking wardens have called off their indefinite strike after winning a significant pay victory.

More than 100 Unison members took 59 days of strike action after rejecting a 57p pay rise offer from the north London council’s private contractor NSL.

They have returned to work after accepting a new three-year deal increasing their £12.70-an-hour pay to £15, backdated from April.

From April 2024 they will receive £15.90 an hour and there will be a further increase of either 60p an hour or the RPI rate of inflation in April 2025, meaning staff will be on a minimum hourly rate of £16.50 by 2025.

Unison branch secretary Liz Wheatley said: “Our traffic wardens have won a huge victory in their fight for decent pay.”

London regional organiser Steve Terry added: “Camden traffic wardens have shown courage and resilience throughout the dispute and can be proud of this achievement.”

NSL’s parent company Marston Holdings and Camden Council both welcomed the settlement.
