Trade unionists were out in force today to demonstrate again over a plan to put staff at Elizabeth Windsor's local council on lower regional pay, writes Tony Patey.
GMB members were out in Windsor - with placards, flags and Victorian outfits - because they fear proposals by Windsor and Maidenhead Royal Borough will spell pay cuts.
The workers are also pushing for an £8.55 living wage in and around London.
In October the council decided to sack staff in February and re-employ them on what the union called "less favourable terms and conditions."
GMB organiser Frank Minal said: "No other local authorities in the vicinity are moving away from the national agreement, and regional pay was ruled out by Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg earlier this month.
"This council representing a very wealthy area has made no commitment to its own staff nor does it do enough to train young workers."
