A library assistant who suffered a manual handling injury while working for Flintshire County Council has, with the help of UNISON, been compensated for permanent back problems which mean she can no longer work.  The 54-year-old from Wales was instructed by Flintshire Council to help move 80,000 books from one area of the library to another over four months in 2008 and 2009.  She was told to lift stacks of books and pack them into boxes - weighing up to 22kg (50lbs) each - which were then loaded onto trolleys and moved through the facility.
