Industrial Action Update

Industrial Action Update

As you will be aware the strike action which had been planned for 21st October has been suspended.  This decision was taken as a consequence of CoSLA (Employers representatives) making a revised offer on the 2014 pay negotiations.  The revised offer, which you will be balloted on, is outlined below.

  1. Consolidation of the Living Wage (currently £7.65)
  2. All spinal column points below the level of the Living Wage i.e. £7.65 would be removed as part of the 2015/2016 pay negotiation – this would in effect delete FC1 and FC2 and part of FC3 spinal points

All Unison members in Local Government will be asked their view on the revised offer commencing Monday 20th October closing on Monday 3rd November 2014.  It is essential that you participate in the consultation exercise.   

Unison is the largest trade union representing Council workers and there can be no doubt that this latest offer is as a result of Unison’s decision to take industrial action.  It is essential that you ensure that all Unison members participate in the vote.

If we do not vote – we have no voice, please ensure that you cast your vote by Monday 3rd November 2014.
