Public sector union Unison said it would not allow members to be intimidated by the dismissal notices.

It said it would meet workers this week to discuss a response.

Unison will not allow members to be bullied and brow-beaten in this way, and we will be considering all methods of challenging these Victorian labour relations - including by industrial action where appropriate."

Oh dear. Gordie really is in a pickle now, what with the Labour Party £20m in debt and the rich benefactors having dried up. He can't antagonise the unions too much, for obvious reasons, but at the same time needs to keep the lid on inflation. Not a nice situation to be in.
