National strike to affect Anglesey services

The planned nationwide strike by public sector workers on Wednesday (November 30th) will disrupt the Isle of Anglesey County Council’s ability to deliver many of its services.

The Council’s main headquarters in Llangefni and other satellite buildings will be closed to the public during the one-day strike over proposed pension reforms. Residents should note that:

  • the majority of schools, including all secondary schools, will be closed on the day of the strike. Schools affected have already begun to inform parents
  • only general waste (Black, Green and Brown bins) will be collected on the day of the strike. Red and blue recycling containers will not be collected. Our recycling centres at Penhesgyn and Gwalchmai will also be closed to public
  • libraries in Llangefni, Amlwch, Menai Bridge, Beaumaris and Moelfre will be closed. All other Island libraries will be open
  • Holyhead Leisure Centre will be closed. However, the leisure centres in Amlwch, Beaumaris, David Hughes and Llangefni will remain open
  • both the Anglesey Archives and Oriel Ynys Môn in Llangefni will remain open

Interim Chief Executive, Richard Parry Jones, stressed, “I would urge Anglesey residents to be patient and bear with us on Wednesday. We obviously won’t be able to provide the same level of service as we’d like. A separate assessment is being made by all school head teachers throughout the island, but it’s currently thought that a significant number of schools will also be closed to pupils.”

Mr Jones added, “Whilst the County Council respects employees’ rights to participate in legitimate industrial action, we still have a duty and responsibility to continue to provide public services, wherever possible. To this end, we expect those staff not participating in strike action to turn up for work. However, we would urge the public not to contact the county council unless faced with an emergency.”

The County Council has negotiated an agreement with local union representatives regarding a number of services to be exempt from the industrial action. They include: home care; residential care and certain other employees providing a service to the vulnerable; and an emergency response capacity.

The County Council would ask members of the public not to visit or contact its offices on Wednesday, November 30th. However, in case of emergency please contact:
