Pay Offer Update

Thanks to everyone who worked so hard in engaging members in the ONE Team campaign. We delivered thousands of postcards to the COSLA President at our rally outside the meeting of COSL Leaders on the 31st August.

All of that hard work resulted in a revised pay offer being agreed by COSLA Leaders that day. You can read the detail of that offer here.

Your Local Government Committee met to consider the offer on Friday 7th September and agreed to recommend REJECTION of the offer when we consult members in the coming weeks.

There are a number of reasons for this recommendation which we outlined to the employer at the meeting of the Scottish Joint Council held on Friday 14th September and in writing following that meeting. You can read our letter to the employer here.

Whilst we await a response from the employer we are putting in place arrangements for the consultative ballot and will have information on this as soon as possible.
