County Councillors will be serenaded on the steps of county hall in Dorchester tomorrow afternoon. (18th December)
Unison Members will be singing them Christmas Carols with a twist.
They've come up with some new words to support their campaign for the Living Wage.
Pamela Jefferies, Dorset County Branch Secretary said "For three years, local government workers suffered a pay freeze, followed by a miserly 1% rise. Conditions have also been cut at local level. Local government pay has dropped in real terms by 20% and is now worth 10% less than it was in 1997. That's why we're campaigning for a better deal."
"Although councillors have agreed that they want to consider improving staff pay, we thought we would send them a seasonal message and ask them to show Good Will to all their staff at this festive time of year".
