London traffic wardens got a boost today as Labour MP John McDonnell took their cause to the Commons with an early day motion.
The 160 Unison members working in Camden are fighting contractor NSL for an increase to their £8.09 hourly rate.
They've staged waves of strikes to force the privateer to come up with the goods and recently voted 79 per cent on a 75 per cent turnout for indefinite strike action.
NSL has reportedly made a new offer but no details were available when the Star went to press.
So far 10 MPs have signed EDM 604, including Worthing West Tory MP Peter Bottomley.
Camden Unison branch secretary George Binette said the motion was a "tribute to the courage and determination" of the union's members over the last months.
