Consultative Ballot on Pay

The Consultative Ballot on Pay closed today with members voting by 65% to 35% in favour of moving to a formal industrial action ballot in support of an improved offer. At todays Scottish Local Government Committee it was agreed to now progress with the preparatory work for an industrial action ballot and to have discussions through a meeting of all Branch Secretaries as to the campaign and strategy required to maximise participation and win the ballot.

The Branch Secretaries meeting will take place before the end of July once a venue can be confirmed.
